Description, including signature and date

This saloon scene is another made by Carl Worner, signed but not dated. It has the bartender and two patrons in the bar, and a sign over the bar "M. Salzman Co. SALOON" At the bottom of the bar is a sign "Find the Missing Man," and there is a man hidden under the floor in a tiny bathroom. There was an M. Salzman Co., makers of overalls, in Chicago during the relevant period, but no Salzman saloon in Chicago or St. Louis. However, there was a Max Salzman saloon in Newark, NJ, from 1914-1916. It is now known that Worner made saloon bottles for people who did not have saloons, so the overall company could have received this for clothes.
