La Adjunteña

Justo A. Martí Photographic Collection, 1948-1985

Bodegas aimed to create a link to Puerto Rico and specific hometowns. This was evident in the names often chosen for these establishments. The Adjunteña alluded to a woman from Adjuntas, a municipality in the center mountain region of Puerto Rico. “Oscar’s” might be the grocery storeowner's name. Tropical products became important products to attract sales. (Retouched photograph for the Bodega exhibit.)
