Bugger! Too easy, anyone who guessed saddler and leather worker got it right. No, it isn't mine Gloria but it's a nice thing!

When I first moved down here in the 1980's I lived next door to a chap who was a retired lamplighter. Must have been one of the last. He had done the lights in the royal parks which I guess had gas lamps a lot later than most areas.

If you look up lamplighters on Google you'll find that there are still lamplighters at work in cities that have promoted tourism and kept traditional gas lamps in central areas. (LINK)

Looks like it could be a pub. Are they delivering ice? The sets in the roads are very even, is it Belgium? I've no idea why I say that!

It does look a bit foreign. I wonder if they are containers of frying fat for a restaurant or hotel?

Guess it can't contain anything too smelly, drippy or repugnant if the carter at the door is carrying it on his shoulders!
Could it be Coal? (Though that does not need putting in a tub when a sack would do).
Could it be dried Peat?

You've got the place right, It's the Netherlands. Sorry but you are all wrong on what they are doing.
Clue, they are taking material out of the building not putting it in.
