Faces & Places of Yesterday
Skinned Wieners Made in Washington, D.C.
Terrific old photo of a woman in 1927, working at a D.C. sausage factory.
1927. “Skinned frankfurts, made in Washington, D.C.” What Bismarck said about laws and sausages: It turns out you can watch them (or not watch them) being made in the same place. Harris & Ewing glass negative.
