Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
A fashionably dressed young woman, carrying a bag labeled "1897," arrives at the entrance of a building where she is greeted by a small man with a bespectacled, globe-shaped head, as another woman carrying a bag labeled "1896" and a paper that states "Very Bad Character - World" departs.
