SAM STEENE GREENGROCER, COLDHARBOUR LANE, BRIXTON

Samuel Steene with Maudie Watmore, posing with his greengrocers' wagon in Coldharbour Lane, Brixton. Sam, with his brother Harry, turned from an early age to street trading as a means of employment. Initially trading coal using a goat to transport it, the brothers progressed to a donkey and then purchased a blind pit pony. 'We would come out of school at 4.30pm and my eldest brother Charlie would be waiting with a barrow load of firewood and we would go round the streets and sell it at 2p a basket'. Not many years after this photograph was taken, Sam ceased using horse-drawn transport and purchased a van to sell his produce from.Digital image by kind permission of Mrs Iris Trunley.
