Black-and-white image of a canal with a covered bridge and buildings in the background. There is a black, covered gondola, being steered by a man in white pants and a wide-brimmed hat, standing on the back of the boat. Behind him there is a tall, covered bridge that arches over the canal. The right side of the canal is lined with three more black gondolas that are tied to the bank.
