Men and women can be seen walking in both directions. Two purposeful men, businessmen perhaps, stride towards the camera. Behind them two women in fine dresses and hats stroll arm in arm.
You can see the city skyline in the background. The giant skyscrapers of today would have seemed impossible to the people of this proud city at its height of power and prosperity.
It is also interesting what you do not see in this picture. There is no litter. Everything seems calm and unhurried.
