What a weird and wonderful contraption!

Some of the folks in The Village make brooms, Tom, and they don't have a jig like that!
Tom Wilson: Perhaps you should start an import business, Ray smile

An old fashioned art
Tom Wilson: He probably does a steady trade.
Our gardener in Madagascar used to make the same type of broom Tom! Fine capture.
Tom Wilson: Pretty well a standard type then smile
I like the shot of the fellow at rest while we get a view of his equipment and product.
Tom Wilson: I think the machine was simply to put the binding twine in. I don't see any handles in sight, so perhaps these were just the broom ends to be fitted to a stick smile
Did they have this fascinating machine working Tom.
Tom Wilson: Yes, he was just taking a break from making them, Brian.
