Ordsall district of Salford, Manchester - 15th December 1969 [x]

"It was mid afternoon and getting dark. A man with a handcart is "totting" for anything that might be re-saleable  This practice, once common among working-class people when they were more than usually hard-up, has gradually disappeared in the age of the three-car family and holidays in Florida."
