Black-and-white image of a street scene in a city. There is a group of three men in the middle ground, who are looking at the viewer, and another man in the foreground who is in profile view, walking toward the right side of the image. There is a busy street in the left side of the image and the men are standing on a sidewalk next to the street. There are more figures in the background, walking on the sidewalk, and there are many storefronts and large advertisements lining the street. There are strands of Christmas garland in the background, hung above the street and between the buildings.
