With last week’s release of the delightful volume Traditional Life and Customs, I am planning to feature a number of photographs from that collection here in the coming weeks. With yesterday’s post on Jaffa Gate, I thought I’d follow it up with a photo taken here from the early 1900s. This was during a time when traffic flowed freely in both directions.
The tins were used for petrol, and obviously, they are empty here. If you’re going through a tough patch at work today, you might think of this guy and be thankful that you don’t have his job.
