DescriptionIndoor scene of two men wearing suits with the one on the right sitting at a table covered with watches and watch making equipment while the one on the left is standing beside the table looking down at the table. The man sitting at the table is wearing a magnifying eye piece and is looking closely at a watch. Above the table and between the two men is a sign that reads: "Waltham Watches Go All Over The World." The sign has a large bird in flight holding a pocket watch in its talons. The two men are dressed alike, and look almost identical.

Perhaps the work of HH or RM Cole, active in central Illinois from 1854-1902.
