    When I was a little kid in Brooklyn, various service peddlers came around either in pushcarts or horse drawn carts. There was the knife sharpener, the used rag man and the junk man. My uncle made a living in the junk business. He had a pickup truck and a helper. He would come to your house and clean out your attic or basement and sell anything of value. When he retired to Miami Beach he had a pile of aluminum and other metal. I asked him what it was and he replied that he walked daily and picked up those things along the way. I guess you can take the man out of the junk business but you can’t take the junk out of the man. 🙂

      Bob,
      It was the same when I was a little kid even though we lived in a smallish town. My favorite was the junk man and his horse. The knife sharpener had a bicycle. He used to pedal to keep the honing stone moving while he sharpened. It was fun to watch. I don’t ever remember a rag man, ut the junk man would also take them with the papers.
