This landscape shows a brown, black, and white line drawing of a road and the buildings along it at night. There are two rows of buildings that face each other, and a road separating them. One of the buildings in the foreground has two billboards above it, illuminated at their top edges and spilling light onto the road around them. The area behind the row of buildings in the background is very dark, and the artist's signature is in the top left corner of the paper. A vehicle with bright headlights drives down the center of the road between the buildings, towards the right.

Seen from the surface of a river, a segment of a wooden bridge carries both carriages and pedestrians across the span. The piers of the bridge are reinforced with horizontal boards to protect against collision. Between the piers the distant shore shows numerous buildings and dry-dock cranes. In the center span, a low boat with a sail is about to pass under the bridge, moving towards the viewer.
