Vegetable Stand



Today's picture shows a vegetable stand in the Mercado Tocon in Havana. The picture was taken in 1904. I am not sure what type of melons those are in the foreground.

  1. It a little hard to believe this was taken 110 years ago, yet in many markets around the world you could still take an almost identical picture. Perhaps some scholarly type could research vegetable stands as one of the constants in an ever-changing world.

  2. Produce stands are always beautiful and interesting to see.

  3. Aren't they pumpkins, or some other gourd?
