A working scene from the Clarke Photographic Collection today. with something I have never seen before. A donkey hitched to a cart, with a further donkey in front of him hitched to his fellow and the cart by chains. A train of poor neddies pulling a heavy load of rock to or from a building site. The building in the background looks quite modern, so it would be great to find out where and why?
Congratulations to Sharon Corbet for totally destroying Morning Mary’s day by identifying the unidentifiable in such short order yesterday. :-(
