Baskets on a shoulder pole

This 1927 photo shows baskets hanging from a shoulder pole. We'll meet the people who used these poles, and take a closer look at the wide variety of loads they carried.

Detail cropped from page 29 of the new Volume 4 of Old Hong Kong Photos and The Tales They Tell. The book will be available in November 2020.
