A view inside the well-stocked general store in Butetown, run by Mr and Mrs Thabeth. According to the original caption, 'they sell everything from cabbages to candles'. In the foreground can be seen Mrs Hassan feeding her baby son, Hamed. Various bottles and packages line the shelves of the shop. Also visible are signs above the counter which read: "This shop is open for the sale of fruit, vegetables, milk, minerals, sweets, cigarettes" and "We do not give rations on Sundays".
