Description

Black and white photograph-style image of an elderly lady sitting on a wooden bench and looking at the camera. She is in an old railroad station, with two advertising broadsides on the white brick wall behind her. The sign on the left is an ad for BankAmericard with text in large print: “Now you have a choice” and depicts a sketch of a hand holding up a credit card. Smaller text underneath: “The only charge card you really need - anywhere”. The sign on the right, directly above the woman’s head, is a faded ad for the Chicago Tribune in dark with white text. Over the title in smaller print: “Feminique: talks a woman’s language”.
