  • Description

    Man Scavenger and Alarm Clock. Part of the PLAY-TIMING issue.

    Location of events unknown.

    Several shots of a 'scavenging man' - road sweeper - collecting up rubbish in a street, with a clock tied to his back. This 'good deed' shows people walking by what time it is. Children stop to look at the clock. A young girl asks the old man the time and he points his thumb behind him.

    Looks rather eccentric!
