This is a cityscape view of Chicago from the 1930's of the Board of Trade Building. It is an etching done on paper and the signature is inside the plate 'Schnieder May 1930'. It is matted and framed with a cardboard backing. The frame measures 18 inches by 11.5 inches, and the actual etching measures 11 inches by 6 inches. The etching itself is in great condition. As pictured there is a water mark to the outer edge of the matte board.
