I haven’t been able to find much written on this work, but that may be due to not having specific resources at hand at the moment. I’ll just say this for now: based on the fashionable dress of the women walking down the street and the wooden clapboard style buildings - especially the church dominating the composition in the central background - I think this shows a common southern Sunday morning scene with recently migrated-north folks come back home to show off the wealth and opportunities they’ve found. I particularly enjoy the courting scene of the couple with their backs to us, and the gentleman who has his head tilted slightly to hear what the lady is saying.
