Title
Rocking-horse workshop, Liverpool, October 1969
Description
Rocking-horse workshop, Liverpool, October 1969. The Collinson family in their workshop in Smithdown Road: (left to right), Ivy and Mrs Collinson Senior sanding a horse, Jervis (34), carrying a horse on his shoulder, Leonard shaping a horse, Margaret Metcalfe finishing off a horse in the foreground, and Jervis Collinson Senior painting. The family have practised their craft for nearly 150 years. The rocking-horses are beautifully carved by hand from yellow pine to a formula which has scarcely changed since great grandfather William Collinson, who founded the firm in 1836, saw Queen Victorias carriage being pulled through the streets of Liverpool by a pair of dapple greys. ©SSPL/Manchester Daily Express
