This print shows a scene of a crowd of people on a street corner, most under the sign for Elm St. Some of the adults in the drawing have upset facial expressions. Many carry loaves of bread. One man climbs the street sign pole, a girl stands behind him, and a bicycle leans against the pole. The men in the drawing wear suits and shirts; the women wear dresses and hats. In the background, a boy in roller skates sits on the curb.
