I have walked about and looked at many pictures of my favorite big city streets marveling at how there is a unique community with all the vendors you need combined in one city block. Every avenue may have a different atmosphere but one thing they all have in common is the "refreshment" stop on nearly every corner! This storefront is based on my photos of movie scenes playing on my TV at the time, Artists and Models, starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis and released in the mid fifties. Although revised a little, my two main references are shown below as WIPs.

I drew this specifically for the new ArchID challenge, Storefront Windows. Read the details below and join in the fun of drawing a storefront!
