This painting is likely to show a fabric-selling shop, common in Paris until the 1960's (a few survive today like the historic Geoges le Manach in rue Quatre-Septembre near the Opera).

Jean Wheelhouse studied at the Royal College of Art and graduated in 1933. She became an official government artist and designed the saving stamps which bore the heads of the young Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
