La Cocora

Justo A. Martí Photographic Collection, 1948-1985

A “Cocora,” according to tradition, was a character who would scare children. Despite the name and the “No fío” graffiti, clearly stating that only cash was accepted, La Cocora tried to welcome customers by selling cold beers, sweets and sodas. (Retouched photograph for the Bodega exhibit.)
