A long, narrow painting, offering a panoramic cityscape of Salford at the junction of Chapel Street, which extends off the far left, and Blackfriars Road, which extends off to the extreme right. The buildings are principally in shades of orange and brick red, and the tarmacked roads shine as if wet after heavy rain. The paint has a blurred, impressionist quality. The Sacred Trinity church in Salford (built in 1635) is a visible landmark on the left, with the 'Black Lion' pub on the extreme left and right ends of the picture. This pub is the point of observation: the straight line of the painting takes in a 360 degree view. Towards the middle of the painting the red arched alcoves below the railway appear to be in use as shops or industrial units.
