The Rocking-Horse Man, benign and twinkling, smoking his pipe

The Rocking-Horse Man, benign and twinkling, smoking his pipe, showed off his dozen or so wooden patients one by one with their obvious macabre maladies: missing jaws, lost legs, most of them very battered and sad. Restoring them to handsome wholeness is not childs play. Each has an individual problem. New parts have to be fashioned to suit each period and type. December 1969 P004890

The Rocking-Horse Man - A Master of Restoration and Tradition

EDITORS COMMENTS
. In this photo print, we are transported back to December 1969, where the enigmatic figure known as "The Rocking-Horse Man" takes center stage. With a benign and twinkling expression on his face, he exudes an air of wisdom and skill as he delicately puffs on his pipe. Surrounded by a collection of wooden patients, each bearing their own macabre maladies - missing jaws, lost legs - The Rocking-Horse Man showcases his remarkable talent for restoring these once-battered toys to their former glory. But make no mistake; this is no child's play. Each patient presents its own unique challenge, requiring new parts fashioned specifically to suit its period and type. As we delve into this snapshot from the past, it becomes evident that The Rocking-Horse Man possesses not only exceptional repair skills but also a deep understanding of tradition. His craftsmanship harks back to a time when toys were cherished heirlooms passed down through generations. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder of the artistry and dedication required in preserving our treasured possessions. It invites us to appreciate the importance of skilled artisans like The Rocking-Horse Man who ensure that even in an ever-changing world, traditions remain intact. Let us celebrate this unsung hero whose hands have breathed life into countless forgotten toys while leaving behind an enduring legacy etched in woodwork perfection.
