People You See: The Shop Sign Men

Here's a super one-page spread from 'Teddy Bear'. Back in 1969 the comic declared itself to be "the best Picture Paper for Young Children". Young readers got 16 colour and black and white pages for 7d - with a nice regular full page series called 'People you See'. These were rather trad Ladybird Book-like depictions of people at work - like these Shop Fitters fixing a new sign to Brown the bakers in a high street somewhere near you 45 years ago...

Can you say what is happening in the Picture?
