Item No: #362555 Chinese butcher and Grocery Shop, Chinatown, S. F. (B 3140). Isaiah W. Taber.

Scarce Taber Photo of a Chinese Grocery

Chinese butcher and Grocery Shop, Chinatown, S. F. (B 3140)

Notes: A boudoir cabinet card of men posing in the left side of a Chinese grocery store displaying vegetables for sale in barrels and bins. From other images of the same store we know that to the right, not very visible in this image, was the butcher.

This is an uncommon cabinet card format printed from a larger negative. This seems to be contact print made from the lower left portion of the negative, cropped at the top of the men's heads.

Edition + Condition: A somewhat faded image on a dark brown card mount, worn at the corners.

Publication: San Francisco: Taber Photo. (ca. 1890).
