Have You Seen the Inside of Center Market in 1910?

Interior view of Center Market showing the interior architecture of the market, a variety of stalls, blurred people, and signs reading "THIS MARKET OPEN EVERY WEEK DAY" and "LADIES' WAITING ROOM LADIES'... 7th St. WING TAKE ELEVATOR."

This is so cool. This is what shopping was like over 100 years ago here in Washington. This shows Center Market on the inside, taken November 23rd, 1910. By the way, the Mexican Revolution started just a few days prior (Wikipedia).
