Rag and Bone Man, Miall Street, Rochdale, Lancashire
Rag and Bone Man, Miall Street, Rochdale, Lancashire
Rag and bone men are no longer seen in Rochdale but in the 1950's they were common. Most had just handcarts with wheels recovered from old mangles - only the more 'aristocratic' men had any kind of horse or donkey. Here a typical rag and bone man is seen in Miall Street, a long and dismal street that ran (and still does) behind the railway station.
