Ellsworth Block on North Pinckney Street between East Washington and East Mifflin Streets as seen from the Capitol Park. Storefronts include the Dry Goods Bazaar, Singer Sewing Machines, the Hollister & Wittman Pharmacy, the Ellsworth Grocery Store, and the Northwestern Business College. Men are standing in front of the buildings near a horse-drawn wagon. The foreground provides a close-up of the iron fence constructed around the Capitol Park that was erected in 1873. As constructed, the fence represented a less expensive version of the original designed by Stephen V. Shipman, the  architect who also designed the Capitol dome.
