The round sofa at Hecht's

Posted Wednesday, August 19, 2015, at 12:00 AM

While waiting to photograph some women modeling furs at Hecht's store on Main Street in August, 1980, I shot a couple of photos of an occupied round sofa in the store.

Today, Hecht's is gone, but the round sofa has another life at the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri in downtown Cape Girardeau.
