Eight women office workers are in a corner of an office performing different clerical tasks, but all have their faces turned toward the camera. There are various desks, chairs, file trays, file cabinets etc around the room. The room is lit by overhead fluorescent lights. Venetian blinds cover a glassed in area on the rear wall. The date on the back of the photo is January, 1952 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]
