Old Commercial Hotel

Title

Old Commercial Hotel

Description

Sepia-toned image of a two-story, gabled building with a number of people standing in front of it and on the second-floor balcony. The ground is covered in snow, and all the people are dressed for winter. A number of boys stand in the snowy street in the right front corner of the image, one holding a snowball with his arm cocked and ready to throw. The girls stand with the adults on the porch. There is a gas streetlight at the corner just before the hotel, next to the sign for the hotel.
