I knew the original owners of the market. That guy has a great smile.
Katherine would love that chicken in the background.
OMGosh, Ruth. Yes, the Market is closed, but not the energy to bring something new into being! Will forward this to Elisa Beck and her latest to you!!! What a GREAT photo!
Sorry to se these places close. I’ve a butcher about 2 blocks from my home and there aren’t many left. It will be a sorry day when all of the independent butchers close.
Wonderful capture! What a story this photo tells: (imho) warm & friendly service, human-to-human contact, small business and an era that’s disappearing.
So sad when great old places like that close. But how cool you have this great photo!
Ehat a gorgeous photo! Did he get a copy?
That guy looks like the way a butcher should. Sad that they are closed. 🙁
Great photo… pity about the market.
