Summary:
Two stereographs, each showing a woman being fitted by a shoe salesman or cobbler. One is copyrighted 1901 by B. L. Singley, publ. Keystone View Co., captioned "Don't Get Above Your Business" (cat. #433); the other appears to be from an earlier negative, although it is also mounted on a warped card, but without identification. In the Keystone view, the man uses a tape measure to measure the woman's leg above the ankle, and in the unidentified view the tape measure is around the woman's foot. Both images are intended to be somewhat naughty or provocative, indicating the, er, low humor which typifies some stereographs.
