Description

Black-and-white image of a street scene. There is a narrow street through the center of the image, between two large, stone buildings. There are several figures walking through the darkly shadowed street, in the bottom of the image, and the tops of the buildings are lit by sunlight. There are several windows on the sides of each of the buildings, with open shutters.
