There are several men standing on the corner of Devon and Brougham Streets on the left hand side of the photograph. There is an ornate street light on this same corner. There people gathered around two two horse-drawn carriages, one on either side of the street. Some horses are visible further up the street. A sign on the right hand side of the street reads "Crossing" and marks the end of the railway line at this time.
