Binmaley, Fruit Peddlers 5
"Rosie" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Fruit Vendors. In his second letter from Binmaley, Hill praised these local vendors: '[They] come through camp all day long selling bananas, tomatoes, peanuts, mangos, baskets, pottery, bamboo chairs and stools, cigars, haircuts, knives. Women (some beautiful gals) stop by several times each day to know if we have any dirty clothes to be washed....Rosita, became another favorite. A local girl of fourteen, Hill described her to Martha as having 'the best American accent I've heard yet. Been to school in Manila. And not much goes over her head.' About both women he was very clear: 'We honestly look forward to their visits." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
