Subject matter
Whistler spent time in Lime Regis during the fall of 1895. This image looks up Broad Street. It was drawn on a transfer paper that was new to Whistler that the Ways had sent him in Lime Regis. He decided he did not much like the effects of this paper.

Physical Description
A curving country town street lies before the viewer. On either side of the street are row houses and other buildings; along the right side of the composition is a darkened doorway and steps facing the viewer. Along the street are numerous figures strolling. At the bottom of the image at the right is a dog, facing up the street and away from the viewer.
