Photographer's Note

These twigs the woman is selling are not asparagus, they are intended to be used as toothbrushes. In large parts of Asia and Africa various kinds of twigs are traditionally used for cleaning teeth. They are still common in for instance India, where this photo was taken in 1977 in the large city of Ahmedabad. I could not shoo away the people standing in the background in order to get a perfect composition.
This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
