Vintage 1920s photograph Shell-fish collector riding his working horse France


A vintage black-and-white photograph, probably dating from the 1920s.
It shows a working-class man sitting on his horse.
The picture is one of a series - the man's job appears to be collecting something, presumably shellfish or crabs, or possibly even birds' eggs from a pebbly beach.
The man is wearing a cap.
The horse is wearing blinkers, a saddle, and a pair or rather uncomfortable-looking wooden crates, presumably to carry whatever it is the men collect from the beach.
I think the picture was taken in France.
This is a SMALL photograph - 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" approx (9 cm x 6 cm).

Condition

Good condition.
The picture has been kept in an album, and there are marks at the corners from the little black holders that have kept it in place over the years.
