Description: 

Walking with her friends through the courthouse square on their way to the picture show, Minnie Cooper passes the drugstore, "where even the young men lounging in the doorway tipped their hats and followed with their eyes the motion of her hips and legs" (181). The drugstore probably includes the "soda fountain," with its clerk who supplies Minnie Cooper with liquor, and its gatherings of younger women "shrieking and giggling with paired boys" (175).
