Big issue seller

Outside the entrance to Clarendon Shopping Centre by the Market you will always find someone selling the Big Issue.

He turned his back to me when he saw my camera.

I am not sure what the Big Issue is all about. I assume it is a way to give street people some work to do. I am not sure that is it so my apologies if I missed the point.

In my day, street people, were mostly called "hobos" and walked the railroads. They never stopped in town because the police or the people would chase them out.

We used to live beside a railroad track and mother always gave them water to drink and sometimes a bite to eat. It wasn't much because we never had much but Mother felt it was the correct thing to do because, she said, "You might find yourself in their shoes some day."

I wanted to thank you for your visits to my blog. Thanks.
