Give Me that Old-Time Profession! (4)
This is the fourth in a series. Here is the first one—including the general introduction to the series.
Pottery repairman. There is a running joke—at least one running around in my head—that Naples is a land of specialists. We joke that if the door handle on your car breaks, you have to go to the "car door handle repairman." That's all he does! That's a slight exaggeration, but not much. The pottery man in this drawing would have been just such a specialist. Plastic and super-glue have sort of put this business out of business, I would imagine. To the extent that such professions still exist, the gentleman would today shout out his availability from one of those very loud motor-tricycles with a flat-bed compartment on the back as he speeds around the streets.
