The New Roxbury Market, known also as Casey's Market, at or near 2677 Washington Street in Roxbury, Massachusetts is seen in the image.

Signs in front of the store promote the groceries and provisions on sale inside, such as potatoes, fish, and oysters. To the left of the store is a set of stairs leading to houses behind the market.
