Archive image from 1979. Vergotes was a live poultry and chicken market on Detroit's east side. Opened in 1939, in its heyday the market dressed a thousand chickens a week.

Of course you won't find many, if any, storefront markets like this in the US anymore. Fear of avian flu spreading has effectively shuttered the neighborhood industry.

This photo is one of a series from a photo story. Here a worker stops to answer the phone on his way to dressing a chicken for a customer.
