An atmospheric, smog-filled view of Albert Square, Manchester, seen from the southwest side. In the foreground is the dark figure of a man, wearing a cloth cap and knee-length coat, pushing a handcart, his figure silhouetted against the wet cobbles. Overhead is a grid of cables. On the far side of the street, to the right of the scene, is parked a hansom cab beneath the statue of Gladstone – the horse feeds from a nose-bag as the driver also rests; behind the statue looms the hazy silhouette of part of the Town Hall.
