1938. Itinerant fish-seller (name unknown), near 67 Major Street, probably on a Thursday in March (that is, just before Passover; likely selling white-fleshed fish for making gefillte fish). The vendor shouted “Weibe! Weibe!” (Women! Women!) as he came down the street. Photo and information provided by Tillie Karasik.
