About this picture

Description

The bar behind the woman is named on the door as "Shorty's place. Dancing". It is described as a "juke joint", i.e. a bar with a juke box. A notice above the door says "Beer". She is called a "sniper" because she can disable or kill American soldiers covertly, like a sniper with a gun
