Inscriptions/Signature

Four story building with a tile roof which fronts on a canal or river. A man and woman converse on a rickety pier in the foreground. The upper level balconies are strewn with laundry and the building’s careworn façade reveals both hand cut stone or bricks and structural cracks and fissures.
