Description

Shows the junction of Lambton Quay and Customhouse Quay on a rainy day. The street is busy with pedestrians dressed against the rain and holding umbrellas, and a tram and two horse-drawn carriages can be seen. A small dog runs across the street in the foreground, possibly alarming the horse it runs in front of. Prominent buildings visible are the Bank of New Zealand front right, and the Exchange building, with tower, on the left. The now-called Stewart Dawsons corner is in view on the left. The Thorndon hills rise dramatically in the background
