In the midst of a traffic jam
A knife-sharpener – using pedal power
Taking a break in the hot afternoon
Kerb side sports
The banana seller – literally in the middle of nowhere.
Mosami (sweet lime) juice maker
Cotton fluffer – a profession that is nearly dead. He walks about the streets announcing his presence with loud shouts and is hired for a day by families to fluff up the cotton in mattresses & pillows to increase the longevity of the mattress.
Kerbside key maker
Pony ride on the street for children ( yes in a residential neighbourhood)
Cobbler with a comfortable waiting arrangement!
