Continuing the bonus flavor for show notes only, the term ragman used in Waste Not’s art description is a reference to a rag-and-bone man, which is someone who collects unwanted household items and sells them to merchants. Traditionally, this was a task performed on foot, with the scavenged materials (which included rags, bones, and various metals) kept in a small bag slung over the shoulder. Some wealthier rag-and-bone men used carts, sometimes pulled by horses or ponies.
Nineteenth-century rag-and-bone men typically lived in penury, surviving on the proceeds of what they collected each day. Conditions improved following the Second World War, but the trade declined during the latter half of the twentieth century. Lately, however, due in part to the soaring price of scrap metal, rag-and-bone men can once again be seen at work.
