Three buses in a line are visible, the front bus ("380 - ANTIOCH") has a young woman, Carrie Gagliardi, in a wheel chair is positioned in front of the bus' front bumper. To the side of the bus (far left side of frame) is a sign being held up by another protester, which reads, "We Pay State Taxes Too - Tri-Delta Operates on Tax Money," etc. In front and behind each bus in the frame there is a person in a wheelchair. Inside the front bus the driver is visible, an African-American woman in a white blouse; also visible are some passengers, apparently deboarding. On verso is the photographer's stamp, "Michael Macor," and the date stamp, "Feb 19 1991." Also on verso is the handwritten description, written in black ball point pen, "Protesters block Delta Transit buses, they want access for their wheelchairs. Carrie Gagliardi is in the front of the bus."
