Local broadcast in the Holešovice Market Hall. recorded next the coffe automat. The Market was established in early 90 ies in the complex of former Sloughterhaus, abolished early 80ies, when the new meat factory was build in Praha Písnice. In the wall towards the river was some years ago still a door with the board SALE of BLOOD. I remember the moaning of beef cattle, which was audible when we have been passing by. After the killing was relocated, the attendants of a special deratisation departement, did feed and gradually poisoning the army of milions rats living in the sawage under the buildings. They spread to the Prague anyway and they have been observed along the riverbanks for several years. The Market became today one of the Prague turist attraction, but the new owner plans to renew it into something exiting, named the Prague Rivertown.http://www.prazskatrznice.cz/
