A mural featuring a horse pulling a red and white covered wagon bearing the name 'Everest and Sons Grocers'. A man in a large-brimmed hat sits on the covered wagon, while another man walks away from the wagon holding one box in each hand. The horse and wagon is waiting on an unpaved road by a wheat field in front of a green hedge with flowers, which extends into a hilly and tree-lined terrain. A child stands beside the horse presenting it a flower. Another child and figure in period-typical clothing wait at a gate that separates the hedge.
