DescriptionScene of pedestrians on a sidewalk lined with shops. A light up sign for "Goldstein Jewelry Co. Elgin Watches" is in the center of the image. An image of an Elgin watch is outlined by lights. The sign hangs over the sidewalk and an awning that also reads: "Goldstein Jewelry Co." A sign for the shop is also over the awning. Other businesses are a confectionary, Walk Over Shoe Co., and Sherman's. A sign in the doorway between the jewelry store and confectionary advertises Dr. Pyle, Alfred Clerk (a furrier), and Dr. Oakwood, whose offices are above the shops. At the top left of the image is a cut glass sign for Chicago Dentists. A woman in a coat is in front of the jewelry shop, and a group of three men are standing near the street lamps. Other people are in the background. A fire hydrant is in the lower right corner and an "Entrance Only" sign is in the lower left. Also in the lower left corner, "Bert C Powers Peoria ILL" is stamped on the image.
