A woman office worker is seated at one of an "L" shaped desk The desk at the right has a manual typewriter on it. A slightly higher desk is behind her at right angle to the desk with the typewriter. The desk behind her has a pedestal-mounted columnar telephone with suspended receiver, and a desk-top, two-drawer card filing cabinet. A rotary telephone number card holder is also on the desk. A row of wooden chairs is against the far wall, which suggests that this is a reception area. A note in the folder reads "August 13, 1970 Mrs. Abounonrad asked me to send this negative I found among the many pictures my husband, Walter H. Meyer, took over his 40 years of service with your city. It looks quite ancient--at least by the autos parked in front. Use it if you can; will send any others I find as I go thru the assortment. Sincerely, Marie Meyer. P.S. I found some more since I wrote this note!" [Note: The negative referred to is not in this folder. JM 6/2000]
