A forgotten profession: In the days before alarm clocks were widely affordable, people like Mary Smith of Brenton Street were employed to rouse sleeping people in the early hours of the morning. They were commonly known as ‘knocker-ups’ or ‘knocker-uppers’. Mrs. Smith was paid sixpence a week to shoot dried peas at market workers’ windows in Limehouse Fields, London. Photograph from Philip Davies’ Lost London: 1870-1945.

Una profesión olvidada: en los días previos a los despertadores, la gente como Mary Smith de Brenton fueron empleados para despertar a las personas por la mañana, disparaba guisantes secos en la ventana de los trabajadores (Londres).

Venice Market, Italy

Mercado de Venecia. Comprar unas verduras y frutas frescas y hacerse una cena saludable en casa después de un duro día de turista. Esto es el intercambio de casas; disfrutar como si fueras un local :)

Cholula Market Salsas (this looks like the place we stopped at on our way to the airport from San Miguel de Allende. Most of the men in the town are working in the USA and these women made a communal restaurant. I paid for 6 of us and it came to $20, American. The food was OUTSTANDING. You keep serving yourself until you almost pop. Good times, good times...)

Comer parado en los mercados, de puesto en puesto, enrollando tortillas con los mas diversos y deliciosos guisados............no tiene igual!
