Rickshaw Rider Relaxing
Waiting For Business.
Cycle rickshaw driver relaxes at the side of the road and puts his feet up with a book, while waiting for customers.
It's tiring work cycling overweight passengers around in the Indian heat, so it's not uncommon to see a young man kick off his shoes and put his feet up.
The cycle rickshaw was built in the 1880s and first became popular in Singapore.
By the 1930s, cycle rickshaws outnumbered pulled rickshaws and would eventually spread to every south and east Asian country by 1950.
