I shot this mule-powered drinking-water caisson early in 1986 at Jeddah Port. I later learned that the owner of this rig was the last of the old-style water vendors who had plied their trade for hundreds of years in Jeddah. The inauguration of a modern seawater purification plant and modern Mercedes tanker trucks did away with this ancient trade almost over night.
