(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Rabbis, artists and interested persons were invited to view a poster, labeled “Maxwell Street,” which is on display by the elevated company on its platforms, in order to see whether there is anything offensive to their sense of justice in the advertisement. The poster was submitted by John J. Moran of Chicago, North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad.

None found it offensive and its good points were remarked upon. It was pointed out by those who viewed it that the market is not now the “Jewish Market” of years ago, the mart now being the store of Jews, Italians, Poles, Russians, Greeks and others-more of an international market place.

Mr. Moran offered to “remove the posters within 24 hours if found offensive to the Jewish people.”
