A sailor in a shore town greets a fellow sailor in front of a tavern and converse about the pleasures of shore leaves. A smiling young woman dances with her hands on her hips as a man plays a fiddle. Another woman sits close to another man a table outside in front of the tavern window. From the Laurie & Whittle series of social satires.
