Black-and-white image of two figures and a dog on a cement sidewalk. There are storefronts along the left side and top of the image, and there is a small dog in the bottom left quadrant of the image. The dog is white with large, black spots, and it is lying down with its head lifted, and facing away from the viewer. There is an old man in the right side of the image, in three-quarters view, who is walking toward the right side of the image. He is wearing a small-brimmed, dark hat and an ankle-length, black coat, and he is holding a cane in his proper right hand. There is another figure in the background, walking away from the viewer.
