Bob H. returns from The Loft near Burlington, MA.  WOMEN'S ClOTHING may be upstairs ... or UPSTALRS, depending on how you interpret the photo taken with Bob's new mobile phone. What kind of topsy turvy world are we in when the lowercase L is shorter than the uppercase I in the same word?

I'd argue that the lowercase L was used in order to save room on the sign, except for the fact that the WOMEN'S ClOTHING letters have been written on a separate piece of construction paper apparently cut to expand and optimize the surface area of the entire message.

Sorry to have to point this out, but that would be UPSTALRS, not UPSTARLS.

You are right, Rimpy! I have edited accordingly.
