Black smoke from a passing steamboat and smokestacks in the background indicate an industrial atmosphere.

European harbor scene with great attention to detail. Appears to be a shipping port with various comings and goings. Clouds indicate an industrial atmosphere with black smoke emanating from a passing steamboat and smokestacks in the background.

Along the shore, there are several buildings constructed on a stone foundation. A wooden pier extends out with figures walking toward a ship flying a blue flag. The ship has an anchor off the bow and a smaller vessel moored close by. 

Framed in walnut, the date is visible, but the signature is illegible.
