Description
Literature

Black-and-white image of a foggy street scene. There is a dark figure with an umbrella in the middle ground, walking through an intersection, and there are several horses and buggies along the street, further in the middle ground. There are tall poles on the corners of the intersection, which connect wires that stretch over the streets. There are tall buildings in the background.
