Original B&W print on beige cardboard mount. Front view of a three-story brick building (one of a row of buildings). A man, probably Eduard C. Meurer, stands in front of the door. The building has large plate glass storefront windows on the ground floor, a cornice at the roof line, and flags mounted at left and right on the roof. Sign mounted on the roof: "PAPER HANGING & UPHOLSTERING." Two identical signs over the sidewalk: "MEURER & CO. / PAPER-HANGING & UPHOLSTERING." Samples of papers or textiles are on display in some of the windows. Sign on the neighboring building at left: "[...] OF E[D]GEWATER." Semicircular windows over the doors have street numbers, from left to right: "168", "166", and "16[?]"; the building at right has street number "162" on a large sign over the door. There is a baby carriage on the sidewalk at far right. An unpaved street is in the foreground, with a utility pole at far left.
