Once upon a time, before motor vehicles, electricity and LP gas were commonplace, kerosene was an important part of daily household life and bullock carts like these brought it to your doorstep. This is the story of one of the last remaining kerosene carts.
I was fortunate to catch this man in 2015 in Colombo somewhere on Bullers road. I quickly got out of my car and took these pictures. My driver Thusitha then got a quick lesson in driving the Bullock cart!
