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 />

Teeming with meticulously recorded detail, this print depicts a massive construction site in the midst of a city. The large hole of the site consumes the majority of the lower two-thirds of the image; the upper portion consists of roads and buildings. Scaffolding and building materials extrude from the site into the air. <br />

This drawing depicts part of a large, Gothic-style church with lancet windows and buttresses, seen at night. Around the exterior of the building are two trees, a lamppost, four bollards, and a person seen in silhouette. A light source outside the image illuminates part of the church’s large arched window, and casts long shadows that fall to the left side of the composition. <br />

In this strongly vertical composition, a street crowded with groups of people and individuals—all rendered in silhouette and casting long shadows—recedes into space, seen from above. The street is lined with two- and, at most, four-story buildings on both sides. A hilly landscape rises behind the buildings, and a stormy-looking sky occupies the top portion of the image. In the right foreground, a woman is seen from the back as she stands on a small balcony looking down the street at a procession underway. The procession follows a banner depicting a saint, and proceeds towards the viewer. Some of the people in the street wear pointed hoods over their heads.<br />
The image is covered with diagonal slash marks. The print shows incredibly rich textural effects as a result of intense drypoint scraping, extensive biting in the darkest areas, and printing on very thick wove paper. <br />
Signed in the plate, l.l., recto, "Bone / 19[?]5"
