Description
Literature

Black-and-white image of a stone building, identified as the leaning tower of Pisa. The building is eight stories tall and leans toward the right side of the image. The side of another stone building is visible in the left side of the image, with pillar decorations around the outside. The leaning tower is decorated with pillars and the top of the tower is slightly smaller than the rest of the building. There are fluffy, white clouds in the sky in the background. There is a thin white border around the image and inscriptions in the bottom left and right corners of the border.
