Artist’s comments

The Umbrellaman goes door-to-door, and he goes up and down Mount Vernon Avenue, and his umbrellas make a clanking, ring-ring sound. He has his hat on funny and twisted. His had and his sad face and the wrinkles on his brow make you know he is a sad man, a strong man, and bewildered.

(Aminah Robinson, A Street Called Home, Harcourt Brace and Company: San Diego, 1997.)
