It is a large two-story structure with gable roofs and a tiered wall on the front facade that bears the name of the store as well as a much larger line of text that reads, "Farmers Co-operative Society, Inc." It would seem that the building served dual purposes. A group of men can be seen loitering near the front entrance, and a few others near a car on the left. The roof on a single-story structure in the rightmost part of the image appears to have fallen down.
