Saddle up

Spent an interesting afternoon in Walsall today (yes, that can be done).

The town boasts a super modern art gallery and a museum dedictated to its once world famous leather industry.  As my regular reader(s) will know, I do like a bit of history.

Not a great pic, but this is in fact an exhibit at the art gallery - called, appropriately, 'Bin Bag,' by Gavin Turk

Walsall Leather Museum. One of the volunteer guides here is a lovely and very eloquent 90-year-old man named Ron who has worked in the leather industry for 76 years.
