Douglas found the cart in a field on a business trip to France. It wasn't for sale, but he thought he would make the owner an offer and see what happened. Luckily, the owner accepted the offer and the cart was bought back to Hungerford Arcade where it stayed in the garden area until Tuesday. We will miss it!
I have taken some pictures of this beautiful cart as Douglas loaded it onto his lorry ready to be delivered to National Geographic on Thursday, 21st February.
When I find out more about the film, I will let you know! In the meantime, enjoy the pictures.
I must just tell you that the picture showing a small metal wheel, is the wheel which is turned to operate the brakes. Amazingly, the wheel and the brakes still work!
