Description

Black-and-white image of buildings lining a canal. There is water in the foreground and one building that is fully visible, seen from a three-quarters view. It is appears to be about four stories high, with three arched doorways on the first story. There are vertically striped awnings over most of the windows. Two shorter buildings are partially visible on either side, and there are short, wooden posts lining the edge of the canal, in front of the buildings.
