The description states:
FARMERS MARKET, LOS ANGELES
This popular shopping center, unique in its arrangement of open air stands, is typical of Southern California’s climate.
–At this time there were over 80 such stalls for vendors, and the establishment continues in the same location today.
The basket to the right of the shopper is not a wastebasket, but a shopping cart for transporting her purchases to her car or other transport.
