Hankelow Village Fete 1911
Please could you contact us if you feel you can tell us who any of these people are. It's possible that the men on the cart are Robert Shore and Jack Watkins, and that the house in the background is Lear's Farm.
I have been told that carts were deliberately left in the pond when their wrought iron/steel (which?) tyres became loose on the wooden rims. The water would cause the wood of the wheel to swell, thus making the tyre a tight fit again.
