Seven women in an office, 1910

A black and white photograph of seven women in an office. Some have typewriters in front of them, some are standing, and all are looking at the camera. In the back left corner there are some box files on the top shelf of a set of shelves. Next to the shelves is a closed wooden door with a small glass panel in the top. There is a fireplace in the back wall with what appears to be a calendar propped up in the centre of the mantelpiece and a vase of flowers on each end. Another vase of flowers sits on top of a desktop filing unit on the right.
