Rickshaw from Shanghai (1927)

Soviet book Rickshaw from Shanghai ("Рикша из Шанхая"), by N. Agnivtsev, published in USSR in 1927. Full download here.

"I am a rickshaw, this is who I am – a man with the life of a horse.
I suck in my stomach, and all year round
I run around China with my bare feet,
Wheeling all those who are too lazy to walk."
