TITLE   Unidentified shoe store
DESCRIPTION   Interior view of an unidentified shoe store in Corpus Christi, Texas. Two men in dark business suits stand ibetween a wall of shoe boxes and a row of wooden chairs and fitting stools. A poster in the foreground advertises a lecture and recital by Ruth St. Denis. The near right counter holds women's shoes and accessories. This store sold Allan's shoes, women's hats, and jewelry. Upside down boxes on the shelves indicate ones that are empty. This practice prevented the shelves from appearing empty. A figure can be seen in the upstairs balcony office.
