Description

One of the Bistram brothers may be seen standing behind a long wooden bar. A display case full of open cigar boxes has been placed at the end of the bar at the foreground of the photograph. Two telephones may be seen on the top of the display case. Numerous glass decanters are visible on a counter behind the bar. Behind the counter are two mirrors in ornate wooden frames. Wooden panels on the opposite side of the room are reflected in the mirrors. A map of North America, with a boarder of small flags, has been attached to the wall nearest the mirror. Four spittoons have been placed on the floor in front of the bar. The number “319” has been written on the emulsion side of the negative and is visible in the upper right corner of the picture. The number “1” has been written in the upper left corner.
