This watercolour painting, using cool tones, demonstrates a great command of the medium and the ability to capture architectural features of an urban landscape. The brushstrokes are reminiscent of the impressionist style and evoke a sense of movement in an otherwise quiet street scene. To the lower right of the painting, there are two figures leisurely strolling along the street and towering over them is a three-storey Nicholls building with several architectural features, including the ornate gallery protruding from the building opposite. The diagonal lines of the street and buildings not only create a sense of depth and perspective, but also guide the viewer's gaze to the left of the painting. There, set in the background, we find a gathering of individuals standing in front of a multistorey building with a verandah on the second floor.
