Five Blue Ribbon Buses parked on the corner of 10th and U Streets in front of the Temple Luncheonette and Drug Co. Inc. store. A man, presumably the driver, stands beside each bus. "Chartering purposes for any occasion" is written down the side of the bus to the left of the image. The text "luncheonette - ciga[rs] - candies - cosmetics - jewelry - soda" is written around the top of the drugstores windows. There are carved Masonic symbols in the frieze at the top of the building. Ink on negative: caption. "DEFENDER SAFETY BASE" edge imprint. No Scurlock number.
