To the right of center, medium-sized pine. In the background, slightly diagonal from the left to the right, front to back, houses alignment one floor only with gabled roofs, doors and windows. On the right edge of the square by looking up the corner of two perpendicular streets with a home and a last building next to the right side edge of the composition.
