Colored print; exterior scene of a man and woman pushing a baby carriage down a street. The man is smoking a long meerschaum pipe and carries a walking stick. The baby sits on a keg of lager, the man has a keg strapped to his back, and a little boy trails behind drinking a mug of beer and carrrying a keg over his shoulder. A small dog approaches a foaming mug of beer that is in the street behind the boy. In the left background, a group of people rallying around a lager banner. In the right background a man has fallen to the ground and raises an arm to a women passerby.
