Defunct professions

I was looking up the history of my local pub here - it gives census details of people who lived / lodged there over the years.

Amongst these was one Henry Dacey who gives his occupation as "Rag Smasher".

A Google search turns up no information on what the occupation of Rag Smasher might involve - I wonder if anyone here might have some idea?
