Hauling Water

Today's picture is from around 1900 and shows men hauling water. The picture was taken in Mexico. I think one of the things we do not properly appreciate is having running water in our houses. If you have ever been in a situation where you had to carry water, you know what I am talking about. The greatest of our modern conveniences is running water in our homes.

  1. Interesting head straps for carrying their water load. I would agree with you on the running water. My family and I backpacker and that is your biggest daily concern while hiking: carrying enough water, knowing where the next water source is if needed, and spending the night somewhere where there is a good water source. (We are blessed here in MI to have abundant fresh water available in most places.)
