Description

Peter Schneider, a hawker who walked from door to door trying to sell braces, laces and newspapers. His nickname comes from a certain diesease he suffered from; a form of neuropathy which affected his way of walking, causing strange looking movements of his limbs. People were reminded of caoutchouc and therefore named him 'rubber'.
