A scarce watercolor work of Southern art, the subject a street scene with traditional historic architecture including a church, two tiny figures and a tree, measuring inside the wood frame 9 3/4" by 7 3/4" (14 3/4" by 13" framed). The scene could be New Orleans or Charleston, South Carolina; I found the work in western Virginia. There is a signature at lower right but all attempts to read it have failed, though, it does appear that the date 1905 is at lower right. The work is on paper laid on an obviously very old card. Overall a pleasing example of scarce antique southern art. I have tried to enhance the contrast on the signature area to show the illegible nature of that signature.
