Boyes Butcher Shop

Title

Boyes Butcher Shop

Description

Black and white image of a butcher shop decorated for Christmas. Two men in white shirts, aprons and with newsboy caps stand behind a glass-fronted counter containing meat. A sign on the wall behind them appears to read 'positively no credit.' Along the wall beside the men, dressed portions of various animals have been stamped with images of bones and musculature and hang suspended from the ceiling with ropes and pulleys from the ceiling. A number have holly sprigs attached to their legs. Fowl hang from a rack against the wall, and Christmas trees stand beside the largest cut of beef.
