Handwritten on the back, "New Vance Breese mail plane." Photo shows the monoplane parked in front of a hanger. The siding under the wings is corugated metal and the rest of the plane appears to be plywood. Just behind the wings is the open cockpit. On the tail is the number of the plane and "Breese". On the ground near the plane is a tool box, a long pipe, and what appears to be a piece of fabric. Someone has written "pilot" in pencile with an arrow pointing to the man sitting in the cockpit, and "mail compartment" with an arrow pointing to the section in front of the cockpit under the wings.
