This image is created with black ink on paper. This print represents a street corner and a view down a street toward Birmingham’s downtown skyline, with the City Federal building seen in the distance. On the corner stands a corner store with signs for Buffalo Rock Ginger Ale, Coca Cola, and Nehi sodas. Down the left side of the street runs a group of buildings, including a café, a two story building, and a church. A power line stands in front of the corner store and runs down the streets on either side of the corner. There is a large, leafy tree at the right side of the composition.
