Shoeshine men in India

These are pictures of men shining shoes in Mumbai, India.

The first few pictures were shot at Mumbai Central station. In the first one you can see a shoe-shine man in the foreground on the platform of a railway station. A few commuters are sitting on benches in the background. Next to the shoe-shine you can see the tools of his trade, displayed for all to see. Different types and colors of shoe polish and brushes. Also insoles for customers who need them. The shoe-shine men have an uniform - a blue shirt and black pants.
