Black-and-white image of a street, lined on one side by a wall. There is a tall, thick pole in the center of the image, and a street sign attached to the pole. At the base of the pole, on the curb, there is a large, white dog lying in a cardboard box. The dog's head is raised as though it is howling or barking. In the left side of the image there is a wall, lining the street, and on the right side of the street there are storefronts. In the background, along the left side of the street, there is a group of figures.
