A $2 Bill Given With Every Pair Of Shoes Bought Here Today!
"The Sensation of Washington"
Just our way of stirring up a little excitement
now that "The Griffs'" winning streak has been broken.

What car?

Can anyone identify the car on the right?

What's the ruckus

Something seems to be causing a commotion. If I'm not mistaken, the window says "We give you FREE - A two dollar bill with every pair of shoes"? Maybe they're just killing time until the streetcar shows up.

And is that a policeman or military officer walking out, with the baggy trousers? I love this scene.
