Buildings were photographed in groups of two or three to show their relative scale as well as their relationship to each other. The survey also includes general views of the via Maggio, views of individual buildings, and details of architectural ornament, fresco decoration, bust portraits, insignia and coats-of-arms attached to buildings, and details of doors and windows. Interior views include courtyards, details of columns, arches, and ceilings. Buildings are identified by their street number; two are identified by name, the house of Bianca Cappello and the Palazzo Ricasoli-Firidolfi, with more extensive photographic documentation of each.
