Everything that goes to those houses must be carried on the backs of men and one of the interesting sight is the great number of men Cairs with most amazing loads on their backs climbing these starlike Streeto. The men lean to far Forward that their backs Are almost horizontal and the loads axe Laid uin the Fiat table like surface which the Back thus presents.
