Broom Vendor

Today's picture shows a Broom Vendor in Cuba. The picture was taken around 1900. This street vendor's portable store offers brooms and carpets. Really love the small independent businessmen like this that used to abound.


  1. There is nothing that compares to a straw broom. Those nylon ones just don't do as good a job. And clever to sell both the brooms and carpets at the same time. New rug, new broom.

  2. Or, do you think the rug is for demonstration purposes?

  3. I need a new broom, and my usual shopping venues only are carrying plastic-bristled, or thin little things. I'd buy from this fellow in a minute. Those are good brooms. I need to find an old-fashioned hardware store, I suppose.
