Abstract:
"A stout, elderly, well-dressed man walks along a pavement past a ramshackle hovel, holding, reversed, a closed umbrella, which he uses as a walking-stick. He steps on a stone which tilts, splashing his white stockings with filth. From a rotten pipe which runs down the adjacent building a black flood drips and streams across the pavement. From an (invisible) upper window hang ragged garments, dripping down the wall. Broken crockery and refuse lie against the edge of the pavement."--British Museum online catalogue.
