Under a spreading chestnut-tree...

The village smithy stands-or rides. 3rd December 1951: The Groom family of Slough, Berkshire, have been blacksmiths for generations, and brothers Bill and Tom have continued the tradition. Their smithy is a mobile one, attached to the side-car of a motorcycle, and they travel to their customers. Bill, shaping a shoe, left, is also the welter-weight wrestling.
