Might the the "Other" Market

Unless this is the old Tomlinson Hall, I don't think this is the Indianapolis City Market. The ceiling is too low and the trusses don't look right. If anything, I believe this is the other market that used to be located at the SE corner of S. New Jersey Street and South Street. That market appeared as a water color on the cover of the White Pages around 1983. The market was demolished shortly thereafter...

Still standing

The City Market (as it is called now) is still standing and operating, but its future is in doubt.

Those look like...

some sort of pepper pods.

The cup

Probably vegetables. Maybe pea pods?

the cup runneth over

Whats in the cup? Also the smaller kid looks sick.

[It's peppers. Pic below. - Dave]
