People at Work - Car-guard

One of the perks of the job - your wife can visit at any time!

This guy very proudly gave his title as "The Prince Alfred Street Car Guard".

A Car Guard is exactly that - usually a self-appointed guard of cars in an open parking area. These opportunities arose because unattended cars were either broken into, or stolen, in public parking areas. Now, each guard will watch a number of cars, and if your car is still there, and undamaged when you return, you give him/her a few coins as payment. While there are no guarantees, this works quite well in most areas.
