Pittsburgh’s Produce Yards – c1936

Aaron Caplan wore a suit, white shirt and tie every day to his store in the produce yards because he was the owner of the business, not just a laborer.  On May 1 every year, he bought a new straw hat and wore that all summer. _______________________________________________________ Part of the Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) Produce Yards, c1936.
