Black-and-white image of part of the side of a building, from a slightly diagonal angle. There is a black lamppost in the foreground, in the left side of the image, which is partially cut off by the edge of the image. It is made of black metal, the arms of the lamp are shaped like vines. The glass on the lamppost is frosted with swirling designs. Behind the lamppost, there are tall pillars along the side of the building, in front of an open area, and the pillars on the other side of the building are visible. The top of each pillar is decorated with swirling, molded designs and there are large circles above the top of the pillars, carved out with a cross shape.
