Horseradish, 1947

Myrtle Chaffill sells horseradish and ground coconut at the West Side Market in 1947. While Chaffill appears to be set up outside, temperatures were frigid even within the produce arcade during the winter, forcing vendors and customers to bundle up. The arcade was not fully enclosed until 2001, at which point central heating was also added.
