This picture presents a clearly identifiable view of delft from the south, between the Rotterdam Gate and the East Gate, where the city wall springs back. Beyond the city walls the dense roofscape of Delft is visible, dominated by the towers of the Oude Kerk, the Stadhuis (Town Hall), and the Nieuwe Kerk and by the windmill in the centre.

The painting is signed lower right: Daniel. Vosmaer.
