Re: Occupations (help with translation from German) #germany

I would like to thank the several people who responded to my request
for help translating German notations relating to occupations, and I
thought it would be useful to share the resulting information. As I was
trying to read a poor copy of a handwritten document, the words I
posted for translation were not quite correct. With the help provided,
I now can make these out as:

"Hausierhandel" - a peddler of goods who goes >from house to house or
village to village with a packsack >from which he sells his wares.

"Schuhgeschaft" - a shoe business probably a shoe shop.
