Very happy New Year to you all. Prickett and Ellis wish you health, happiness and success in the year to come.
PERIOD FEATURES: Did you manage to fit a good walk into your busy social calendar? If you did you probably came back with a fair bit of mud stuck on your boots. Now imagine a Victorian street thick with excrement
of all sorts, especially tons of horse dung, and you’ll understand why these little contraptions were de rigueur.
If you’re lucky enough to still have a boot scraper, look after it, they are a very collectable item.
