I suspect this job is like Garry the coalman. The chimney sweep is a thing of the past, today is much cleaner.

There's usually a bloke fishing in this spot. Looks like the coalmans pinched his place.

Perhaps it's a good tax dodger selling from a boat!

Coal is sold from a Barge to keep the boats nice and warm.
