1001 Black Men–#558

Another happy, comfortable air-conditioned employee of the Westfield Mall, Market St., San Francisco. Outside, literally hundreds of thousands of people were happily basting in the heat as they watched the city’s annual gay pride parade. Inside, the mall was uncharacteristically quiet for a sunny summer day. The man in this drawing assured me that the quiet was only temporary and that he and the mall employees were bracing themselves for the onslaught that would begin as soon as the parade was over.
