Impressionistic smog-ridden industrial scene, depicting York Street, Manchester, looking towards an arched railway bridge spanning the street, over which a steam train is passing. Two labourers shovel a pile of coal on the road in the foreground to the right, a single motor car drives along the road to the left. There are crowded pavements and tall buildings to the left and right, a grid of tiny lights shining through the smog and steam from a large office building, possibly India House, can be seen in the background beyond the railway bridge.
