In an affluent neighborhood located in a warm climate, a paved sidewalk recedes into the horizon. The sidewalk is bordered on its left by manicured lawns and palatial homes and on its right by trees and a broad thoroughfare [identified as Orange Grove Avenue Pasadena]. On the image’s left-hand side interspersed amongst the immaculate landscaping is a view of one home with a medieval looking turret and beyond that another large home that sports an onion-shaped dome topped by a crenelated tower.
