Black-and-white image of a street scene, viewed from perhaps the first or second story of a building. There is a street in the foreground, cutting diagonally through the image, and lined on each side with lamp posts. The sides of two buildings are visible in the left and right sides of the image, the building on the right side is much closer and casts a shadow over part of the street. In the middle ground, two large, tall posts that are topped with small sculptures line the end of the street. In the background there is a body of water, with more buildings further in the distance, behind the water.
