Reasonable discourse

John Wasserman from Prospect Heights says:
In the 1st photograph, I see a large boxer, embracing a punching bag on the roof of this speakeasy. I'm having a lot of trouble with this. Is it a mural made to look like an alley, or is it a gym, made of glass, for giant people?
Thanks in advance for your immediate cooperation.

John Wasserman

ps. Thank you for including a Native American in the upper left corner of the 3rd photograph.
Also, in this 3rd photograph, I must say (if you don’t mind) that the 2nd man from the right looks almost exactly like the Bartoonist, Bill Roundy (but with eyebrows).

John Wasserman,

These are not actually photographs. They are hand drawn pictures.

Not even sure about the hand-drawn part. It's entirely possible Bill draws these things with his prehensile brain.

Think again (hahaha-get it?)...I was hoping someone would be able to answer my intitial question though, if you don't mind my asking. In fact, I was looking for "immediate cooperation" but I see that time has passed, unfortunately.

whatever from greenpoint says:
Is it really that hard to Google street view to see for yourself? It would have taken you less time then asking the first time and replying a 2nd.

John Wasserman from Prospect Heights says:
What is this "street view" jargon, in which you speak? Besides, I have no access to the internet, if, in fact, this is a real option of mine.
I can only hope, for the love of the Sacred Bleeding Heart of Jesus, that someone will just tell me, as this is where i get 95 percent of my valid (and invalid, as it turns out) information.
Thanks for reading.

John Wasserman -

I have consulted the Google street view on the Internets. It is a gym made of glass for giant people. But, the back wall of that gym (which is what you see in the picture) has a mural on it made to look like an alley.

I hope that helps.

Ah, yes. Just as I had suspected. Having said that, i deeply appreciate the work on the computer witch you have done.
Good day to you, sir.
Enjoy what ever you like to do, on this fine day of days.
