When people enter the transport industry, often they do so because of some sort of inspiration. Many different figures from history or fiction have been involved in moving goods from place to place, and often with a very glamorous presentation of their trade. Is it any wonder so many feel like following in their footsteps when it comes to haulage work? Taking responsibility for making sure goods arrive safely up and down the country can be quite a challenge - but drivers all over the UK rise to it. One of the best-known truck drivers was a man named Lawrence Richard Walters, a humble truck driver from the USA who nevertheless became a minor celebrity in 1982.
Australian chairs followed the designs of their European counterparts very closely, the major distinguishing factor being that our local cedar timber was not as hard or as tight grained as the mahogany used in England, and was prone to breaking through the short grain of the back legs or in the shallow turnings and tenons. Bearing these problems in mind, cedar chairs will often have larger proportions to allow for the lesser structural properties, and most examples show considerable wear to the legs, especially the front pair. Fine quality examples of Australian cedar chairs are made of select cuts of cedar utilising the closest and straightest grained timbers for strength and also for their similarity to mahogany. There was quite a prestige associated with being able to afford goods from abroad, primarily England.
