Description

Black-and-white image of a shoreline, along which there is a long street and crowds of people. In the foreground, in the lower left corner of the image, there is the side of a steep hill, covered with rocks and brush. There is a large body of water in the right side of the image with many small boats, and the shoreline curves toward the center, then back toward the right side of the image. In the middle ground, in the center left side of the image there is a small group of houses, and there are small, white carts lining the shore. There is a long, stilted pier in the center of the image, stretching out into the body of water.
