Faneuil Hall Market



Quincy Market, 1920. Though cars were more common by this time, horses were the preferred conveyance of produce peddlers. Quincy is still a market of sorts    architect Benjamin Thompson, turned it into the first Festival Marketplace (1976); the above building functions today as a vast food court.



Faneuil Hall, 1923, with Quincy Market beyond. The Harbor appears in the background. 

Faneuil Hall Square, 1925. That is the apron canopy of Faneuil Hall at lower left—needed because the ground floor was a functioning wholesale food market. Both canopy and the function that required it survived until about 1975. Every single thing in this photograph has now vanished.
