Description
A black and white photograph of a woman sitting on a suitcase on the sidewalk. The woman wears a paisley print dress and looks directly at the camera with her mouth open. She wears earrings with two dropped hoops. Another suitcase similar in size is next to her, perpendicular to the first; it is open slightly. Behind her is the exterior of a brick building, with what may be a doorway mostly in shadow. On the back of the print is an inscription with title and date, the photographer's signature, and the photographer's stamp.
