This was the M R Craig Meat Market, before the devastating fire of 16 Jan 1906, that destroyed many businesses in downtown Russellville, AR.


This is a Sepia Saturday post. Head over there for more historic photos.

That's an interesting old photo. I'm glad we no longer have to see such vivid reminders of where meat comes from.

I wonder if the men with their hats are customers selecting their meats or inspectors. The butchers appear to be at attention.

It's a long while since I saw scales like that. It's an impressive meat counter as well.

Sawdust used to cover the floor of butcher shops. Renewed every day, they swept it up for this photo I think,

This is an amazing photo, and it's just incredible how they had that meat just hanging around in the open! Karen S.
