On the right, the flare of a gas lantern lights up the side wall of the church of San Socco, at the angle of the Via Schiavoria and the Via dl Ripetta. Various groups of figures stand near the church, and a priest, carrying an umbrella, walks off towards the right. A closed cab, with an umbrella over the driver, waits near the street-lamp, and another is seen on the open space leading to the Ponte Cavour. The distant houses are tenements on the other side of the Tiber. The sky is black and densely streaked with falling rain.
