We love old butcher shop photos. They tend to evoke the same sense of community and pride in one's craft that we strive for at Fleisher's (not to mention that the meat in the old photos was mostly grass-fed and all hormone- and antibiotic-free). This one, showing an old butcher named William Cohen, was submitted by one of our Kingston customers, who's one of William Cohen's descendants.

We'll be running more of these old photographs in the weeks to come. If you have some you'd like to share — regardless of whether you're related to the butcher in the photo — send them in. Or just bring them over to Fleisher's. It'll make our day.

Have a great Labor Day, everyone. We'll be back with more meatiness next week.
