This post is for the real senior citizens. Even I am too young to witness all these featured itinerant hawkers; a few look familiar. And if you are not from Penang, these pictures will appear more alien.
So this post is more for my archive recording than to please any youngster who might chance by this post.
Everything changes for better or for worse. Live life with this realization and you will experience less frustration. Presenting the old charm of Penang, the one and only place in the world.........
(An update: Apparently you can still see some of these hawkers in rural thailand between La Ngu and Trang on the western road to Krabi)
