Newcastle upon Tyne in the north-east of England. Granted, not a great deal of skyscrapers here – none, to be precise – but there are loads of bridges. The one just being completed there in 1928 is the Tyne Bridge. That’s a good 9 years before the Golden Gate Bridge, incidentally.
Original 1950's metal rocking chair by British toy company Tri-ang. Fabulous iconic design that would look great in any playroom. It's showing some signs of it's old age, but is a really charming piece and very collectable. Fact of the day: Tri-ang toys was formed by the Lines brothers - William, Walter and Arthur Lines. Those 'three Lines' made a triangle, hence the name Tri-ang! Please contact me for a postage quote.
