El 91 Butcher Shop, 2006
The “El 91” butcher shop doesn’t exist anymore. Its owner, Juan Carlos, had been selling meat straight from the slab since he first started, more than sixty years ago. When new regulations demanded that he exhibit the meat cuts in a refrigerator, he realized, having no heirs, that it was time to close the shop. The investment was too high and he was too old. He died soon after.
