Description "The Cab Stand," 1876, etching by Félix Buhot.
Signed lower left corner, in plate: Felix Buhot 1876
Below signature, in red: artist's seal ("FB" owl)

Image features a line of four horse-drawn carriages waiting to pick up fares. The day is dark, gray, and rainy. A couple with a small dog stand under an umbrella by a street lamp, while another woman walks along the street to the right. A row of dark industrial-looking buildings, some with billowing smoke, lines the street next to the carriages. The wet pavement reflects the carriages and horses on its surface.
