Hughie and Alice Deadman's
new 22' Vickers.
Pictures taken in Scotland.
Inside the trailer: Alice Deadman with her son Hughie.
This photo shows clearly the style
and taste of the 'flash' travellers of
the time: Crown Derby, lace trimmed
and tasselled blinds, lace tablecloth, Welsh blanket on the bunk. Note also the 'bedding box' still a useful feature in the trailer at this time.
A smart 'Siddall Torbay' trailer, which belonged to
Alice Deadmans mam and dad. Picture was taken
at Dalkeith near Edinburgh, Scotland.
Helen Ann Varey infront of a 1958/9 'Thompson Geln Elg'
taken at Appleby in 1961. Thompson vans were popular as
'kitchen trailers' and with the Scottish travellers.
New and gleaming: a fine 'Lonsdale'
a very classy trailer !
Interesting to note the remarkable similarity to the first 22' Westmorland Star
Hardly surprising as Ted Sears, partner in W.S. had been works manager at Lonsdale.
