Meet Mr. Martin – Aka Paper Man

Mr. Peter Emmanuel Martin, better known in the community as “Paper Man”. Mr. Martin sells newspapers everyday through the villages from La Jalousie to Anna Catherina and on some Saturdays he reaches the Leonora Market.

He said that he has been doing this job for the past 17 years and it is something that he enjoys very much – it is his livelihood. He knows his customers very well and their reading preferences. He is even familiar with the children in the villages. Mr. Martin, with his resounding voice shouting “Paaaapers”, can be heard as far as an entire street away. His primary form of transportation for peddling his business is his faithful bicycle.

“Paaaapers…..”
