View of a three-story western style building on the side of a road. The exterior of the building and sides of the road are lined with pennant flags and rows of lanterns, possibly in anticipation of the historic visit to Shanghai by the Duke of Connaught. Standing outside the building's gates are two people dressed in traditional garments and a third person in western style garments.
