“Living in Wartime. If you are having trouble buying meat, it is because your neighborhood butcher is having a tough time getting a supply. This crowd is part of the group that waited around in the Fort Greene, Brooklyn, wholesale meat area for shipments to come in yesterday. Arrival of truck starts a rush to the packing house getting the delivery.” PM, March 19, 1943, p. 10
