A black and white image of African American men in a work area, learning to use patterns to sew garments. They are each sitting at their own work stations and are working with various types of cloth. On the back wall of the room are posters that demonstrate the types of clothing that can be made for men and boys. A large fan swirls in the back corner. In the lower right-hand corner, a group of three men lay out measurements for garments. The photographer of the image is unknown.
