Two men stand on either side of a counter, a glass in front of one of them. One wears dark workman's cap and light smock; the other wears flat fur hat, furlike coat with full, light-colored sleeves. A blossoming potted plant also rests on the counter. Through the large glass window can be seen a dark building, a tree, and a policeman looking in the window. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/20/95)
