Push Carters Pushed Around for Last Time, Markets Head Says

November 1, 1934

Orchard street push cart men who have been pushed about of late by the markets, police and fire departments, are to remain where they now are—and where they were stationed originally—on the east side of the street, Markets Commissioner William Fellowes Morgan, Jr., announced yesterday.

The push cart merchants have had their troubles since they were branded recently as traffic hazards by the police and fire departments and their situation presented a difficult problem to the Department of Markets.

There will be further conferences between Commissioner Morgan and police and fire officials on the matter. In the meantime these street merchants are not likely to be molested further, Commissioner Morgan said.

Louise Grafemus (also known as Esther Manuel) disguised herself and served in the Second Koenigsberg Uhlans in 1814.
