Roasted chestnuts sold by street vendors also made good hand warmers in the cold of the late Autumn.
Dr. Rodney T. Hard
Persimmons sold at the street market in the late fall of the year.
Pictured is a mechanical 'threshing' operation. The yet to be hulled rice is transferred into the straw bags. Later, in a milling operation the chaff is removed from the grains of rice. One of the many uses of chaff is to pack apples in crates for market.
