Silver Heels Hotel, 1830

Northwest corner of Fifth and Buttonwood Streets, Philadelphia, Pa.

This is an almost rural scene. There are five red brick buildings with several smaller wooded buildings interspersed. The corner to the left appears to be laid out as a park. There are numerous trees just beginning to show their leaves. The Silver Heels Hotel has a sign outside with a horse painted on it. There are many human figures, one of which is a man on horseback.
