Description

A photo of a c. 1900 postcard (Running Repairs!) depicting an old woman repairing a boy's trousers. The work basket is lodged in the boy's wheelbarrow while granny goes into action on his trousers. Note the label torn from the end of the cotton reel - how many of us remember doing that when we were young, before plastic reels?
