Art identification confirmed by Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr.

Although the cover allegedly refers to the interior story "Side-Street Love," the characters and the plot suggested by the cover do not really match the story inside.

Bored Sally is engaged to Frank but begins an affair with department store night watchman Buck, who gives her gifts he “bought” with his “employee discount” (Buck actually stole the merchandise). Sally spends time with Buck in the closed store at night, hoping he’ll propose marriage. They’re caught by the police: Buck tries to blame Sally but they’re both sent to prison. Sally regrets her “cheap, sordid, side-street love!!” and that she lost Frank, a decent man.

The basic premise of this story is the same as the novel and film "Laura" by Vera Caspary. However, the conclusion is different.
