AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A young man has become a swaggie and goes from town to town looking for work, hitching rides on trains. He no longer feels embarrassed by his state, only angry and is ashamed when a woman gives him a cup of tea and a cake because she feels she despises him. Unable to find any work, he eventually resorts to stealing food.
