Description

Black-and-white image of a building from a frontal position. There are two tall, decorative pillars in front of the building, in the left side of the image, one closer to the viewer, and at the top of each there is a small sculpture. The building is in the right side of the image, in the middle ground, and partially cut off by the right edge of the image. The building is two stories tall, and there is a balcony which wraps around the second story. On the balcony there are pillars that are ornately decorated along the top of the building. There is a light-colored railing around the roof of the building, and on each post of the railing there are sculptures of figures. In the background, in the left side of the image there is another building, with a dome-shaped roof.
