Today's picture was taken in 1908, and it shows a street market in Richmond Virginia. Wow, this guy really has some produce, doesn't he. I believe I see watermelons, cantelope, corn, and maybe potatoes. I would be willing to bet the shopping experience was infinitely better than at Super Walmart. Those watermelons are huge. You have never had a real watermelon if you have not bought one from a farmer on the side of the road.
