Description (Brief)
A wintry scene of a group of people standing under an apothecary's awning. The building reads "Stad's Apotheek." There are eight people standing by the building's door. There are four men, two women and two children (one boy and one girl). One of the men has a walking stick, and the boy is holding a bottle. In the right hand corner there are two dogs. In the background there is a cathedral, a carriage with three dark figures following it and a woman and child.
A copy of this print exists as a painting dated 1841. It is a watercolor titled "Delivery of Medicine at a Town Apothecary's Shop." It does not match the print exactly however, for the dogs and the woman in the background are missing.
