Ice Cream,Sir

An Ice cream vendor selling in Durham City centre from a really old fashioned bicycle derived ice cream container.I was really taken by this man,he never lifted his head at all to acknowledge his clients,it felt to me that he held a sense of “shame” that he’d come to this after probably a lifetime of work and still needs to earn a living.processed to look like the world it belongs in,I think it brings a sense of the past into the modern world.
