Casey's Market, 2677 Washington St., Roxbury, Mass.

Description

The New Roxbury Market, known also as Casey's Market, at or near 2677 Washington Street in Roxbury, Massachusetts is seen in the image. Workers in aprons, children, and onlookers stand on the sidewalk looking toward the camera. Signs in front of the store promote the groceries and provisions on sale inside, such as potatoes, fish, and oysters. To the left of the store is a set of stairs leading to houses behind the market. A balustrade marks off what seems to be a porch above the roof of the store, in which area there is a clothesline.
