Can you say "swept under the rug"! With a wathcful eye the maid lifts the corner of the rug and voila all clean! This image fseems like form a long ago era, but really not that far back at all. Another great pre war image by John Hyde Phillips, this one from May 1941.
Some minor paper restoration along the borders and in the two lower corners, bu the body of the image is super clean and in great shape. A few border tears enter the image, but you have to look for them to notice due to the black background.
