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.
