Description

A view down Eastgate Street in the city of Chester, which is located in Cheshire, England. The photo shows a series of commercial properties in the half-timbered style. A horse-drawn carriage waits in front of a store, while a child stands on the sidewalk. The second stories of the two forefront buildings contain gothic-styled windows. The ground floor of the furthest building consists of a loggia, which encloses the store fronts.
