Depiction of Eighteenth Street looking north with Rittenhouse Square on the left. A lofty apartment building, rising at the northeast corner of Walnut Street, creates a contrast to the older brownstone facades of the buildings lining the square. A trolley car and automobile provide a similar contrast to the horse and rider in the foreground.
