The print depicts an image of the Petersen House, built by William Petersen, a tailor of Swedish descent, in 1849. The home is a three-story building with a basement that is partially seen at street level. A sign hangs above the basement entrance. The print was mounted within a frame using mounting corners but was removed for preservation.
