Anita from West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States

Great photo. This image reminds me of the various craftspeople who set up shop along the sidewalks in Peru where I grew up. I mainly remember the lady who mended our stockings!

@Anita: yes we had ladies like these in Greece in the 60's. Modernization changed it all.
But there are a few countries in the world where all this is still practicing. Greetings from Athens Greece, Dimitrios.
