Window display at an unknown store featuring a mannequin wearing a sequined evening dress by Traina-Norell, which is described as the label's "slinky sequined version of midnight blue" on a sign resting on the floor. The long sequined dress ties around the neck and exposes the wearer's shoulders. The mannequin holds a champagne glass and streamers while wearing a New Year's Eve themed hat. Additionally, the mannequin appears to be sitting in a large crystal dish that is held by two blackamoor sculptures. A large candelabra is displayed in the back with gift boxes, bottles of champagne, and confetti decorating the floor below. The photograph was part of a larger scrapbook that can be found in Box OSx-2, Folder 4, and features a small "Hare" logo on the bottom right corner, which is presumably connected to a photography business.
