Sep 28 2009 6 CommentsJapanese workers working #19 Exactly how many years this little old lady has been plying her trade is a mystery, although feasibly it’s for longer than the salary man whose shoes she’s servicing has actually been salaried.
That’s probably the most depressing image I’ve seen in awhile.
Poor woman. Her hands look so damaged……………
i really hope she is smiling under there like our young friend who sells jewlery and trinketts
Unfortunately not Adam…
I would feel ashamed to have someone else shine my shoes. (Granted, it’s a living, I guess).
That image looks so sad.
But it’s a tough life, you need to work to eat. Though everyone would see she’s working hard to work for money rather than begging.
