Toby Jug Street Vendor figurine produced in China for Department 56 of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, circa 2018. During the late 1800s there were upwards of 30,000 street vendors, also known as costermongers, in London, each selling his or her particular wares from a barrow or donkey-cart. The array of goods for sale included oysters, hot-eels, pea soup, fried fish, pies and puddings, sheep's trotters, pickled whelks, gingerbread, baked potatoes, crumpets, cough-drops, street-ices, ginger beer, cocoa and peppermint water as well as clothes, second-hand musical instruments, books, live birds and even birds nests. Most middle class and working class households depended on these street sellers, who had regular predictable beats, and made a fair living. With his clapboard sign, this Street Vendor specializes in selling toby and character jugs.
