Illumination

It sure looks like recessed lights around the perimeter. I can't recall seeing that in photos of that era.

And why an enclosed cashier stand in a bakery? That hardly seems like a place where they'd need such security, especially then.

[This is the bakery section of a larger grocery store. A cashier's booth was a common feature of retail establishments at the time. -tterrace]

Which location?

Anybody happen to know which DC location of the Old Dutch Market is pictured here?

And Don't Bother to Wrap It

I'll eat it here!

Curious inventory

They sell hams, brooms and home-made sweets. I'm trying to establish a connection.
