The mud-larkers: These boys at Portsmouth Harbour do a mud-lark turn to get pennies from visitors crossing the bridge to the Harbour station. Pennies are thrown into the black soft mud, and the boys scramble to recover them. For a sixpenny piece they will put their hands in. As much as 7/6d can collect in a day by one boy, when there are plenty of visitors. August 1953 D4025
