Due to the grocery strike, traffic jams of customers are commonplace at independent markets like this one at 5744 West Manchester. Shelves in the background look as though there's plenty for all, but market operators know that if the deluge of buying continues, stocks will deplete fast. Photo dated: January 3, 1959.
