Black-and-white image of two girls, seated in a dark interior. They are seated on a bench, facing the viewer, in front of a table which has a chair on the other side. There are various glasses and ashtrays on the table, and the girl in the left side of the image is smoking a cigarette. The floor is black and white checkered tile. The girl in the left side of the image has straight, light-colored, shoulder-length hair, and the girl in the right side of the image has straight, dark, shoulder-length hair. Both of the girls are wearing dark, long-sleeved shirts and gazing downward.
