The Bar and buildings are faintly outlined in drypoint.
The Bar is more defined, still in drypoint, with architectural details outlined and casting shadows, statues in niches above the arch, and stones round the arch added; the wall of the house at left is extended; buildings are seen through the arch; long horizontal lines run across the front of the arch, indicating wooden structural supports.
The composition is completed in etching, with windows, statues, pilasters and other architectural details added to the Bar, pedestrians and a horse-drawn omnibus in the arched passage underneath, and a lamp-post in front of the Bar at right; other additions include the head of a horse in the foreground and figures in the street at right; a horse and cart at left; roofs at upper left and a church tower in the distance at right.
The impression reproduced is foxed.
A later impression - reproduced above - has a long diagonal scratch across the foreground, crossing the horse's head ().
Several curving lines and a patch of horizontal lines indicate clouds in the sky.
The impression reproduced is badly foxed.
