Description

The male owner and four male clerks may be seen standing near counters and display cases in this interior view of an unidentified grocery store. Parcels wrapped in paper and tied up with string are visible in a display case in the foreground of the photograph. A partially filled basket of apples rests on its side in front of the case. Glass candy jars and small card board boxes have been placed on top of the display case. A wooden barrel stands in front of a counter on which may be seen a scale. Many other cans and boxes of various sizes have been neatly displayed on wall shelves, tables and counters. A sign hung on the wall read in part” “Teas and Coffees.” The number “3126” has been written on the emulsion side of the negative and is visible in the upper right corner of the picture. No number has been written in the upper left corner.
