This print has three main images all printed in a monochromatic grey. At the top is an image of a man, in a tweed coat and fur hat, polishing a motorcycle. The scene is from a pier. The sign says "GANGWAY 1," with the ocean and the Statue of Liberty in the background. The central image is a detail of the face of the Statue of Liberty, with a small boy visible in her crown. The bottom image is more abstracted shapes from a dot-matrix image.
