Description: 
Flower market showing Adderley St. from sidewalk. Bracken, calla, blue gladiolus, heath, violets, daffodils, protea. Early in morning went down to the flower market which stretches for a hundred yards or more along Adderley Street on the east side at the post office. Here wild flowers and cultivated are sold - very cheap and in great quantity. Most of them are gathered from the adjacent mts. or hills and swamps and carried in by wagons or in big baskets.
