Description
Inscriptions/Signature

There are two images side by side placed above a block of text. In the facing left image there is a man in the center wearing a blue worker's uniform carrying a lunch box. He is standing in front of a counter that is screened in. Behind the counter is another man wearing a green jacket and passing a piece of paper through an opening in the screen. Behind the man in blue is another man in blue and above his head is a sign with the word "CAiSSE". In the facing right image there are two men, one of them faces to his left and is wearing a green jacket, blue and white pants, and a black hat. The other man is facing away from the viewer and wears a blue jacket, red pants and a green hat. Behind the two men is a red bricked wall and a, wrought iron gate. On the front of the gate is a sign that reads "L'usin est ferne". Behind the iron gate is a factory building. Below the two images there are three blocks of text in different typefaces.
