Object:Ladies at a bar
Description:Four ladies in evening dresses are having drinks at a bar, one leaning against it and smiling into the camera, three sitting on bar stools. The ladies are surrounded by male visitors who are not concerned with the photographer. Three waiters are busy behind the bar, two of them looking into the camera, one talking to one of the gentlemen. The wall behind is adorned with a wooden shelf displaying champagne and whisky bottles and two horses advertising a whisky brand. The wall has a coloured whitewash with a flower pattern and electrical chandeliers. A table with a white cloth and four chairs in the foreground suggests a larger restaurant room.
