Title: Big rush is on again

Very large crowd (seen from behind) waiting in line outside Loeser's department store; "going out of business" signs in storefront windows; policeman watching over crowd at left; skyscrapers of Brooklyn Heights in background. Caption: "BIG RUSH IS ON AGAIN: Long lines of bargain hunters, at least eight abreast and stretching around three sides of building, file into Loeser's for second day of going-out-of-business sale. This scene, on Livingston St., shows how police kept order today with wooden barricades that left narrow aisle next to curb for passersby."
