A Broker is someone who sells things. Presumably in this case furniture. Though he could be the furniture equivalent of a pawn broker buying furniture from people when times were hard. Locally there was such a man and his company is now the largest independent furniture shop in Sheffield. Though they don't buy secondhand any more and the poor couldn't buy the furniture. He originally use to move furniture around on a barrow.
