Title: Fourth Street looking South from Olive Street.

Description: A view of Fourth Street, looking south from Olive Street. A large domed-building can be seen in the background of a line of commercial buildings down Fourth Street. One structure is labeled with a sign in front of it which reads "Ticket Office 49". Advertisements on its walls indicates that it is the "Chicago and Alton Ticket Office" and that they offer a "direct road" to Chicago, and trips to New York, Boston, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, Detroit, Cleveland, and Niagara Falls. A horse-drawn streetcar stands in the street nearby, and many horses and carriages line the streets. One building along the street is labeled "T.J. Albrightson", and another has signs indicating that it offers engraving, music, and pianos.
