The Reading Terminal Market

Dorothy grew up in South Jersey, just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia. She remembers her mother taking regular trips to Philly and visiting The Reading Terminal Market. We had a chance to go there on a recent visit. It was an absolute madhouse on a Sunday afternoon. The place is a huge market with shops selling virtual any and everything to eat  – prepared foods or groceries – plus textiles, and numerous other goods.

I had my camera in hand and found a vast amount of subjects to photograph so that I could try to convey the feel and look of the market.
