Black-and-white image of a man in full-view, facing the viewer. He is seated on a thick, stone railing and wearing a white, long-sleeved shirt, white pants, and white shoes. He is wearing a light-colored, wide-brimmed hat, and he is holding the edges of the brim with both of his hands. There is a building in the background with tall, arched windows.
