Looking across a railroad crossing and up the street. Backsides of brick and metal warehouses and factories are across the tracks as well as piles of wood crates and pallets. Automobiles are parked at the curb in the background, and houses line the street even farther back. Utility poles run along the tracks, and on the left are painted advertisements for Bag Pipe Tobacco. The caption on the back of this image reads: "Looking Up Hancock St. From RI Yard (Water St)."
