Hiya Roy, yes, Jimmy and Rosie were my in laws, both huge personalities, and very well known in the Bootle area
Horses In the picture were looked after by Jimmy, he loved those horses, even brought them home to keep in the front garden
He would decorate the horses himself before the carnival, (Rosie wouldn't do it
) took great pride in parading the strong work horses all over Bootle and Litherland
I Remember him telling me about the weight of the loads these horses had to pull along, but that was the accepted mode of transport back then, and they were very powerful animals - but sadly, not all would be as well treated as these!!
Roy, Jimmy, (your cuz) sends his very best
will try and dig out some more carnival pics!!
Nice catching up
