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. There are small trees on each side of the building, and a white wall, the height of the first story, in the left side of the image. The building is three stories tall, and on the upper two stories there are tall, arched windows, pillars, and a balcony on the second story. The windows are paired together with a smaller, circular window above each pair, and a pillar separates the pairs. In the right side of the image there is a gate in front of a tree, and another building is visible behind the tree.
