Market porters from Borough show their skill by balancing baskets on their heads.
Full title reads: "Herne Hill. Strong - but no so silent - Men! Borough Market Porters hold annual sports .... their test of strength and agility."
Herne Hill, London.
Market porters compete in their test of skill and strength. The men pick up wicker baskets and make piles. They then attempt to balance them on their heads. Some piles fall over and several of the men have a good laugh.
