The Market Woman

Loretta reports:

Another in my series on historical occupations.  I’ve blogged about ticket porters.  They were licensed to carry items.  These women, apparently, simply showed up at a regular post, to carry goods hither and yon.  It's hard to imagine the level of strength and stamina this job demanded.

—George & Robert Cruikshank, The Gentleman's Pocket Magazine, 1829
