Beamish 1940's Farm 4/5

Beamish - The Living Museum Of The North - Part 4

This area of the farmyard had facilities to store the farm wagons undercover, although I don’t think the one in the foreground will be travelling very far!

The blue dray has "modern" axle and wheels...can't compete with the "old" wooden set with iron hoop tyres, heh!

This closeup is excellent, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I suppose back in the day this would have been a comparison of old and new styles, now they are both old fashioned.
These look a bit past their prime! smile
Brian Walbey: It would be great to know just how old they really are. My paternal Grandfather used to drive wagons like these as he worked on a farm most of his life.

Every county had its own form of horse drawn farm wagon in days of old
Brian Walbey: I think your'e right about that Chris.

"One wheel on my wagon..." I'm surprised to see a pneumatic type on this; O guess the running gear was updated yet retaining the original body.

I suppose this is just how it might have looked Brian, but with a few words people scattered around.

I like the home made axle stand, surprised the other wheel is not chocked
Brian Walbey: Seeing as how this in the middle of a museum with lots of children visiting I guess that other wheel probably should be chocked for H.& S.reasons.
It may be fixed by the end of the day, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I did wonder if it was a recent fault that required it to be supported like this or whether it was part of the display.
The fact that it has pneumatic , or perhaps they are solid , tyres suggest this is not that old
Brian Walbey: Unless that was a conversion at sometime or other.
Grand old stuff, well taken, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank.
