Men at a Drug Store
In this picture, there are five men in front of a drug store. The drug store looks fancy, with a really nice, big sign above it. Also, there is a nice little path in front, so maybe that was where the buggies parked. There is a little passage way to walk up to the front. After you get to the front of the buliding, there is a little set of stairs and a really pretty awning; it's very pretty.
Nowadays, most stores don't have a little passage way; they just have a big parking lot. Plus, they are not as fancy (unless they are restaurants or something). The mall and the pharmacy in Charlottetown do not have all those fancy designs on the roof, and they don't have little paths in front; they just have huge parking lots and you can lose your car there.
The men in the picture look kind of cranky. I wonder why they are all in front of the building? They could be smoking a pipe or just talking or getting some fresh air, but then again they are dressed up.
