This picture captures a pair of traveling vendors saying their goodbyes to each other before setting out on a new peddling tour. Both are ready for their destination, fitted out with leggings and sticks. The man has a barrel strapped on to his back and his wife is carrying a basket on her head. She is also carrying her baby on her back, wrapped by her jacket.
