Very cool...thank you for sharing!
It's quite a cool print, isn't it? Love the massive tuna head on the trolley and the foreground guy with his bum up in the air. (Could that be a deba?) I think the place looks very much the same today; certainly the buildings and the people in a way, although I think these days it also looks a lot more congested than in this print.

There just isn't as much left of it to sell and eat.
