Gondolier 1 by jennystokes Gondolier 1 by jennystokes
Gondoliers have supposedly practiced this method of Transport for 1000yrs
The first painting of a Gondolier was by G. Bellini in 15th -16thC
At this time there were approx: 10,000 Gondoliers now only about 400.
All the Licenses are held by old families whose sons have been in the trade for 1000s of years.
2009. Ist Female Gondolier.

I notice the same general black and white pattern worn by several of your Gondoliers...is that a traditional symbol?

Blue and white.
In the summer they have blue and white striped long-sleeved t-shirts.
Too cold.
I did not know they had blue and white scarves!!!!!!!
Very cold.
Hugs and than Harry
