This video features market scenes which show push cart vendors displaying a variety of merchandise on a busy, crowded street in what appears to be a tenement district in New York. The camera is mounted on a moving vehicle and passes horse-drawn wagons and automobiles; young boys run alongside and thumb their noses at the camera.
- What was being sold by vendors?
- What evidence from the video clip describes what it would be like to be to shop in the the city during this time?
