AN AZOREAN DRAY AND ITS LEADER Photographs from A. T . Haeberle THE TASSELED CAP, WORN BY THE LABORING CLASS, IS OFTEN SEEN IN THE STREETS OF PONTA DELGADA: AZORES This genial barefooted native is a fruit vender. The wicker hampers borne by his donkey contain many varieties of semitropical fruits, including figs, oranges, bananas, pomegranates, lemons, grapes, apricots, and perhaps a few of the delicious hothouse pineapples for which the islands are famous and which sell in the London markets for four or five shillings each. Note the Chinese lanterns which festoon the trees, indicating that this is the Espirito Santo festival season.
