The hand carts of Bur Dubai

For a city known for its skyscrapers, glitz and modernity, the term hand-carts may seem a bit out of place.
I spotted these handcarts during one of my many trips to the Bur Dubai souq. Bur Dubai still manages to hold on to the old world charm.
These hand cards are usually used by the local trading community to transport goods from the creek to the shops and surrounding areas.

Really nice posts and pics on Bur Dubai! I used to live really close to here and it was a great place to wander around, occasionally dodging some of these carts piled high with rolls of material!
