Description

An elderly man sits at a roll-top desk while a woman is posed with a typewriter at a table next to the desk. A large fern is on a wooden stool next to the window at right. Pinned to the window frame next to the fern is a sign that reads, “We close Saturdays at 12 O’clock, “ and a poster with an arrangement of five photographs along with text that reads, in part, “Photographs after the storm, Insure to-day at the American Insurance Co. of Newark, N.J. To-Morrow May be Too Late.” The terracotta decorations visible outside the window at right place the office on the 6th floor of the B & I Building. The number “121” has been written on the emulsion side of the negative and is visible in the upper right corner of the picture. No number is written in the upper left corner.
