Description

Black-and-white image of a building, in three-quarters view, in front of a canal. There is water in the foreground and tall, wooden poles lining the front of the building. The building is three stories tall, and there are shorter buildings, partially visible on either side. The ground level of the building is made of large bricks, and there is a large, arched doorway in the center. The upper two stories have smooth walls, and balconies which run along the entire width of the building.
