A large crowd of men—almost all of whom wear top hats—women, and children congregate in an urban setting. In the left foreground a woman in a blue dress and an ornate hat passes the viewer. To her left a hobbled man holds a sign with a few legible words amongst squiggles; they read, "General / BOOTH / City Hall". Part of a bridled horse is seen at the extreme right side of the composition. Behind the crowd, whose clothing is heightened with an array of pastel watercolors, a colonnade is visible; at the left corner of the building the colonnade recedes backwards, and is mirrored by a row of receding street lamps. <br />
