In this group, Opie depicts the facade of the Strand on Lower Broadway in various states, capturing the book store's parties and passersby. He renders the great writers, artists, and entertainers that frequented the Strand during the 1970s, many of whom are featured in Burt Britton's Self-Portrait .
