Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 14th September, 2016)
Big hearted Arthur
Interestingly, the tape measure that Mr. Silcock is seen clutching here, has the first 12 inches missing from the end of it, and he constantly wonders why his ride always ends up projecting out into the public highway by a foot. One has to laugh.
I wonder if the Silcock family still have the old Caravan that they used to travel round in? It was a beautiful thing.
Dens, Herby Silcocks caravan was indeed something to see.Alec Threlfall spent months painting the ceiling (Picasso style)
Did some work Arthur Silcock repairing ride barriers many years ago when I work for Jack Almond Joiners at Higher it was interesting work ,a lot of bandsaw work involved on the curved barriers.Like the photo Edward.
