That picture is likely misattributed. I am almost certain he would be collecting horse/animal manure from streets, hence his fork and sack. A gongfermour (nigh soil man) tool of choice is a wooden spade/shovel and a bucket as not only is their business on the wetter side they were also needed to be quiet as they worked at night only. There is a possibility used wooden spades to lower the risk of explosion too, though I would thought they used candles for light so not sure on the veracity of that, certainly though a fork would be pretty useless.
