The city of
Czernowitz had many fine stores and establishments in which
to shop or just browse, and many residents would take
strolls (shpatsirn) along the Hauptstrasse, Herrengasse and other
store-lined streets in the city. We can also stroll with
them, and try to identify what kind of businesses were
extant during these times.

The store of Saul Leib Steinmetz
is in the background. It appears the
word about the name is "carnatarie," which may indicate the
store sold sausages.There is also a sign
underneath the Steinmetz sign for
"Lozuri," and what seems
to have been a state lottery.
