Heavy impasto work depicting Castlegate, Salford; buildings are simplified to simple blocks of colour against the pale sky. Indistinct dark figures walk the streets depicted in the bottom left corner. The church can be seen to the right of the painting, with other surrounding buildings in red and light brown. The result is a depiction of a busy street in an industrial city context, to the left a dark shape extends vertically across the canvas, possibly representing a lamp post.
