Description

This photograph was taken looking down a wide aisle in the fabric department of the Levi James & Company department store. A woman, wearing a large hat and a two-piece suit with a long skirt, is seated at a counter looking at a sample, or pattern book. A boy is seated behind her and is also looking at the book. A female clerk is standing on the opposite side of the table. Rows of small drawers are visible behind the clerk. Bolts of fabric have been placed on the counter beside the woman. Other clerks and the department manager are standing along the aisle towards the rear of the room. Many bolts of fabric have been placed on the counters, and are also visible on shelves behind the counters. No number has been written on the emulsion side of the negative and is visible in the upper right corner of the picture. The number “2” has been written in the upper left corner.
