"This photograph represents the native fruits, melons, etc., usually found in the markets of the various cities and towns. The stands are generally kept by women amd girls, all of whom smoke cigars and cigarettes." "This market is on the shore of the bay of Cavite, and is a popular resort for our soldiers stationed there, who are attracted as much by the curious people as by the singular products which they offer for sale."
