A view of the front façade of the City Hall in Providence, Rhode Island. Samuel J. F. Thayer designed the five-story granite building in the Second Empire style. The cornerstone was laid on June 24, 1875, and the building was dedicated on November 14, 1878. Sculptor Randolph Rogers created the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, which was dedicated on September 16, 1871. A number of bicycles lean against the fence surrounding the monument. Several pedestrians cross Exchange Place, later renamed Kennedy Plaza.
