A coloured sketch depicts a cityscape with various male figures in identical blue trench coats and hats, walking towards the background, and one figure on the right walking toward the foreground. There are tall brown buildings in the frame on either side of the page. An arched window in the building on the right has a green illuminated interior. There is a row of street lamps along the middle of the image in the background. The sky in the background is coloured in purple near the horizon and blue at the top of page, with an arrangement of small pastel purple dotted clouds. The brown street is cast with dark shadows of the men that are walking in it.
