Description

On the right are signs for George E. Bemister's piano rooms and the George M. Krey music publishers. The Ginter Grocery Company sign can be seen at 566 Washington Street. The two women appear to be looking in the window of a clothing store. Across the street is the Adams House hotel and B.F. Keith's New Theatre. The shadow of the photographer can be seen at the bottom of the image.
