The drawing is an artists' impression of 'Sir Jesse Boot's Gift to the City of Nottingham', looking south-west from high above the new road [modern University Boulevard]. Running parallel to each other from the left hand side of the drawing are the road, a tree-lined pavement, a tramway, and a further tree-lined pavement. The park and boating lake are to their right, and a hill [the site of the current University Park] is at the far right of the drawing.
The drawing is in pen and ink, and has been coloured in watercolour by H.W. Grummett. It is framed.
