Description
Literature

Black-and-white image of two women standing on a sidewalk, in front of the corner of a building. There are more storefronts in the background of the left side of the image. The woman in the left side of the image is leaning her proper left elbow on the shoulder of the woman in the right side of the image. Her eyes are barely open and she is standing slightly further back from the viewer than the woman in the right side of the image. Both of the women are wearing white shirts, knee-length coats with fur trim, and they both have long, dark, straight hair that is worn down. The street is shiny as though wet from rain.
