City Meat Market

Description:

The City Meat Market was located south of the Oxford Hotel. It faced SE 1st Street, where the entrance to the First National (Bank?) was located.
Please observe the horse-drawn wagon at the right of the photograph; and the sides of meat hanging in the open air. The gentleman holding the carcasses of poultry probably does so only for the sake of the picture. The clean aprons of all the men associated with the store are also probably only for the picture. Otherwise, they would be heavily blood-stained.
This building later housed Roger's Army Store. Information about it was taken from A. F. Weaver's book "Time Was in Mineral Wells", second edition, page 121.
