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.
Most chairs made in Australia before 1830 have saber-style front legs, some tapered and pegged (in an English provincial style), and others have turned front legs that were manufactured on a pole or treadle lathe. Machinery in the workshop at that time was very simple, driven by manpower in the form of a treadle or rotating flywheel: the job at hand was pretty well all hard slog. This period in our turbulent past of colonial cabinet-making is considered by all experts and connoisseur collectors alike as the only period worth collecting, as it was pure in style and as close to being completely hand-made as possible. Chairs of this period are mostly fitted with drop in seats and, on rare occasion, are caned below, allowing the seat to be removed for summer comfort. Chairs from this period are extremely hard to find.
