Hawker selling nuts : close-up

The photograph shows an itinerant hawker, commonly known as the "kacang putih" man, selling his wares to a customer. He sells mainly nuts which are scooped into a paper rolled up into a cone for his customers. No longer seen in Singapore, the hawker plies his trade by carrying the tray containing his wares on his head as he moves from location to location. Date of creation estimated. Title devised by Library staff.
