Description

Four black and white images are depicted on this page. From the top to the bottom, they are: a photo of people eating outside a restaurant; a photo of people sitting at small tables between trees on the side of a busy street; an illustration of a street vendor and people sitting in patio chairs; and an illustration of people sitting at small tables, talking and smoking. A teacup is printed in pale green ink on the upper right side of the page, a green band of color is vertically dividing the page beside the teacup, and just above the bottom image is a pair of pale green dice.
