Title taken from image. Wide view overlooking one of the major public squares in Paris, France, decorated with statues and fountains. A bridge filled with people and horse-drawn vehicles is in the foreground. A sailing vessel with three masts is docked to the left of the bridge, while a slightly blurry image of a moving passenger vessel is to the right of the bridge. In the center of the square is the Luxor Obelisk, given by the Egyptian government to France in the nineteenth century. Beyond are an array of historic buildings. The sky in the distance is hazy; smoke is seen coming out of chimney stacks.
