Original B&W print, mounted on card stock. View of a beach and hillside; at the edge of the beach, a large sign is mounted above a row of small cubicles or sheds: "BAY CLIFF PARK. / Hill's Union Br'y. Co's / LAGER BEER." At left, a flight of stairs leads up to a deck next to a low building; the deck appears to be built around a large tree that partially hides the building. In the foreground, men, women, and children walk on the beach; several small boats, probably rowboats, are on the shore, with people near them.
