This image is created with black ink on paper. Its background is dominated by a tall group of six buildings in downtown Birmingham, including a group of four buildings that comprise the “Heaviest Corner on Earth” and the City Federal Building, which is only seen as a small segment behind the Heaviest Corner. In the foreground of the etching are buildings of a smaller scale and through them runs railroad tracks. A street runs beneath the railroad tracks through an underpass, and a number of people walk on the street.
