Dagupan, Public Market 17
"Sorghum transferred to customer's container - Dagupan" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Molasses Women. In a letter, Hill told Martha how female vendors at Dagupan dispensed their product: 'The sugar is boiled down molasses -- brown and very thick. It was displayed in open-topped five gallon containers. Customers stuck their fingers in to sample it and test for viscosity. Customers brought their own containers -- no dipper. The dealer filled the can by handfuls.' The basket on the left holds rolls of dried tobacco." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
