Sketch No. 36

Description:

Subject : Provision car. In this image Roch gives us an insight into an interesting aspect of commercial life in the form of a travelling cart for provisions. Note the bell on the hand cart which would have been used to attract attention to prospective clients. Presumably food was sold from the cart and the chimney-like box on the top suggests that the cart might have contained hot produce, although this may have been an air vent.
