As heavy snow falls, so do well dressed men and women, whilst children, both in the foregound and distance, throw snowballs. A flower seller, to the left, has fallen to the ground, as a woman, in the centre, slips and grabs a man's coat, bringing him to the floor as well. Goupil's blind stamp, bottom centre .
