Printed on antique laid paper with fragmentary script in brown ink on the verso. 5 1/4 x 7 inches, 134 x 179 mm. (plate), plus margins. In excellent condition. Sloan wrote about this print: "I have always liked to watch the people in the summer, especialy the way they live on the roofs. For many years I have not seen the summer life of the city, which has perhaps been better for my health than my production of city life etchings." Morse at page 148.
