Refuse collector and 'rag and bone' man, South Normanton
About this image
Last vestiges of the era of rag and bone men; collectors of all sorts of junk that nobody else wanted, which evoked images of 'Steptoe and Son', and who were usually grubby looking chaps on a horse and cart shouting 'any old iron'. He is probably doing his round on council refuse collection day to see if anything interesting has been left behind for collection.
