Pedal Car and Photographs

circa 1952

Tri-ang pedal car on a pedestal which was used in hairdressing salons as a child’s seat.  Accompanying photographs show it in use.

This car was bought in around 1952 from Watt’s, a hairdresser wholesalers, on Cannon Street, Manchester. It was used in several hairdressers around Greater Manchester between 1952 and 2002.

The photographs show a young boy having his hair cut in the car at Eileen & Bernard’s salon in Prestwich in around 1960.
