eagle eyed vin spotted the interesting barrow man here and asked for more details, so here he is in a sequence of four pictures i took from up the Monument a few weeks back.
here he is with a ‘customer’ ?
preparing to move off
on his way
and that’s all i have. it looks like offal in the trolley. or perhaps it’s poultry.
it was as hot as summer’s day today, official the hottest day ever or something (for October i think). and london was packed. the BBC has some interesting weather news here
i had a meeting on the south bank and took my big camera to get some decent shots. unfortunately i’m clueless so most of my photos were rubbish (i need to go on a course …)
anyway, it’s also half-term holidays so london was full of tourists, especially just here.
can you believe it, i managed to reunite this chap with his lost travel card! hoorah for a happy ending.
in all my time collecting photos for davescollections, this is the first one i’ve reunited
for those interested in the story of reunition:
from the ticket i knew his local train station, so i found which train operators run out of that station and phoned their lost property department. they put a note with my phone number in his file and when he went in to buy his replacement ticket he got the message to phone me
