Tricks of the Trade

Window-shopping with historical photographers

This third installment of The Pleasure of Plenty shows off the fruits of labour of farmers, inventors, craftsmen and factory workers. The generous lenses of the featured photographers have captured places and instances where trade is done, where fresh produce is laid out lavishly and new creations are shown proudly. Intricate and straightforward at the same time, these images turn out to be as abundant and enticing as the consumer’s paradises they portray.
