You're quite right. When I was a nipper Wagon Wheels were HUGE and delicious things Frank

I think this wagon is a bit beyond repair..
Frank L Croston.: Thats how I remember them, Chris. I think you are right about the wagon.

Very pleasing, Frank. Think of all the care that went into making this wagon, to end up like this
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elisabeth. It would be interesting to know its history.
They are tiny now grin Nice sepia job here Frank
Frank L Croston.: They are so tiny I haven't seen one for awhile...Thanks, Bill.

Frank L Croston.: We all seem to agree, Andrew. smile

Frank L Croston.: I bet,Martin. I wondered how old it was...

Lovely - I like these junked up farmyards.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, actually its at the rear of an old house in Flagstaff.
Great opportunity, I like the sepia toning. Current Wagon Wheels are good for about two mouthfulls these days!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian. I can't remember seeing one for sometime.
The wooden wheel on the left is unlike any I have seen.
Frank L Croston.: I was thinking the same thing....
