My favourite occupation

Postby Loakesy » Tue Jun 07, 2011 9:15 am

I have just entered details of my 1st cousin 3x removed. On the 1901 census he give an occupation of "Tennis bat bender", which I think has to be my favourite occupation among those I've found so far! :grin:

Does anyone else have a favourite, unusual occupation that made you smile when you found it?

Logic merely enables one to be wrong with authority.
