Portrait, July 1964

This sketch artist had better leave plenty of room at the top of the paper for the blonde lady's hairdo! Back in the good old days, one end of Center Street held an area where masterpieces of art could be purchased, and you could have your portrait rendered exquisitely in pastels. A boy in a krazy-colorful shirt watches with interest...what exactly is that pattern, military hats and refrigerators? Behind our lovely model is the Coke Corner, where I used to go to order a Pepsi just to mess with them.

I think the store is the Swifts market house, not the Coke Corner. The tray in the window looks like the Swifts tray.
