Translated caption: Berlin 1933: Street scene in Grenadier Street (now Almstadt Street) in the so-called "Scheunenviertel." Sale of bread and rolls from a wooden cart.
The "Scheunenviertel" (Barn Quarter) was an area near the center of Berlin, north of the city wall. Barns ("Scheunen") were not allowed in the city due to the fire danger from the straw. In the 18th century, Jews were ordered to live in this area and influenced its culture. Note the older, Jewish man on the left hand side of the picture.
