Rinden Kanost Collection, China in the 1930s: Street Market

Abstract

Arthur Rinden's description: On the street is the daily market for vegetables, fish, and other things. Note that the buyer carries his own scale balances. There were 7 different scales in use in 1927. It was important that the food scales were used for food! Now, all scales are standardized by the national government, as is the money. When we came to China [1927] it was issued by the nation, the province, and even by local stores or pawnshops. Metal coins were 'rung' to learn if they were silver or counterfeits!"
