Title

The Old Market Square 1

Description

People flocked in great numbers to visit the market stalls on Old Market Square where almost anything could be procured. The crowd in this photo includes both children and adults, among whom we can find elegant men sporting top hats, Jews wearing traditional gabardines, and workers in threadbare clothing. The women in this photo are characteristically wrapped in mass-manufactured working-class shawls. The Old Market is the oldest of Łódź's public markets.
