Every Inchie Monday--road sweeper

Hello Everyone and welcome to my new followers. So pleased to have reached 80 of these special friends and I do love to read your comments and visit your blogs.

At Every Inchie Monday this week we have the theme Road Sweeper. It seems that my mind is connected to, the very talented Hazel, and we had chosen the same image for the inchie even though there were hundreds to chose from. I have made another one as well which is quite different. It seems like we are on the same inchie wavelength almost every week.:)

I found this image of a road sweeper from the past and I drew around the image in black pen so that it would show up when I took the picture. I find that they pixelate so easily without defining the edges.

I did read a bit of the history of the road sweepers about the time of Jane Austen and they had an awful time with all the stuff in the streets that they had to clear late at night and before people got up.

Thanks for looking

Love Chrissie xx
