"Scene from the Bronx tenement district," 1936.Shorpy comment of the day: "My great-grandfather was a grocer in the Bronx at this time. I'm not sure if he had a shop like this or if he was more of a distributor to larger markets but this photo made me think of stories my grandma used to tell. Especially the title 'Sal the Grocer.' She would describe people in terms like that: 'Charlie the Cab Driver,' 'Georgie the Milkman' etc."
