TITLE   Unidentified auto repair shop
DESCRIPTION   Interior view of an unidentified auto repair shop possibly in Robstown, Texas. Two men stand behind a wooden counter in the corner of a small room with wood walls and a concrete floor. The man on the left wears a white cap and dark bow tie. The man next to him wears a dark hat, jacket, and overalls. Two little boys, both in dirty work coveralls, are in front of the counter. One sits in a tiny rocking chair. This shop sold new and used tires, fan belts, battery cables, Champion spark plugs, and Lee's polish. Note the cuspidor on the floor behind the children.
