The building sits on a plot of ground with very narrow streets (possibly alleys) to each side. Across the alley to the left stands the City Tavern. To the right is a 3-storey town house with the housewife at her dutch door. There are several adult figures in the scene and a child. In addition, there is also a closed carriage with horse.
