    Must have had a lot of littering from the population of 1.5 mill.

    If they gave out on the spot fines for littering they would have employed as many folk and gained revenue : but depression may have meant more in jail costing more.
    Ah, darn stats once again.

    As was pointed out the big cheesy grins were for publicity.LOL

    Hum, good idea for giving homeless people that are out of work a lift up here in the States, glad to pay them $15.00 an hour!

    It´s staged of course, and likely very close to their yard of mass departure. Along their walk they would branch out to each individual route. The street they´re on would likely belong to the last in line, who would pick up trash without obstructing any sweeper behind him. Just guessing.

    I imagine the vast majority of these work crew photos are staged, especially considering the era.

    On the other hand, when grown men stand next to chest-high wheels, they tend to smile. It's like tickling a baby.

    I'm MOL average height. Cart wheels don't do it for me. But spoked motorcycle wheels do at a third that height. So does spinning rubber!
