Other trades: hawkers

Some Muslim cameleers became licensed hawkers, selling a variety of goods from a camel- drawn wagon or a small string of pack camels. Asim Khan and Gulam Rasool both made the transition from cameleer to hawker, buying goods from Marree storekeepers, such as bags of flour, potatoes and onions, sauces, jams, sweets and drapery, and selling from station to station. Members of the Buksh, or Bux, family arrived in Australia as hawkers. But most ‘Afghan’ hawkers in Australia were Sikhs or Hindus, from merchant backgrounds.
