Dorothy's Dress Shop


Dorothy's Dress Shop


Black and white image focused on a dress shop exterior. Two lighted display windows are filled with goods, one depicting loose casual wear and a dress, and the other swimwear and other summer clothing. Statues and jewelry are scattered about the floor of each display space, depicting Asian deities and other figures of interest. A large sign above the window depicts a couple relaxing, the girl in a two piece swimsuit and the boy in short sand a t-shirt, advertising 'Sweethearts in Swim Suits, Catalina.' Two cars are parked on the street in front of the shop. This image was part of the H. E. McMullen bequest. Herbert McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other photographs and images of daily life in the area.
