Gordon Fernegel Interview, 2012

In this 2012 interview, Gordon Fernengel talks about owning a beef and pork stand at the West Side Market. His grandfather owned two meat stores outside the market and then bought a stand in 1922. The stand was passed on to his father and then to him. He explains how his father taught him to pick out beef and butcher it. He also relates how the neighborhood and the customers have changed over time.
