Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives – #PotLuck – Beamish Museum ~ WW1 ~ Horses Edition ~ April 2018 ~ part 1 Fraggle Photography

Welcome to the series of Posts from Your Archives, where bloggers put their trust in me. In this series, I dive into a blogger’s archives and select four posts to share here to my audience.

If you would like to know how it works here is the original post:

This is the third post in the series from Fraggle Photography and a visit to the wonderful Beamish museum to step back in time to World War I.  You can find part two in the Fraggle Reports

Beamish Museum ~ WW1 ~ Horses Edition ~ April 2018 ~ part 1

In April 2016 Sophie and I went along to the WW1 Vehicles & Steam fair at Beamish Museum. On checking their website we found that this year they were doing horses of WW1. The horses were not 100 years old of course, but there were people were all dressed up in period costume and showing how horses were used back then, so off we went to ride the trams and take photo’s of everything.

The Circle

The Circle is our favourite tram, and Sophie and I really want to sit on the balcony bit at the top there, but so far we haven’t managed to get on soon enough, we’ve only ridden in it downstairs.

We decided to walk anyway as we wanted to take pictures along the way.

Giddy up

It was great to see some big dray horses, I love their hairy feet!

They have lovely natures too

This next shot is the back of a field kitchen

Steam cooker

and this is the horse’s tail who pulled the kitchen.

and his feet, standing ver prettily I thought


can’t forget his lovely face too


and off he went on his rounds

We’re in for a few reports from this day out, so stay tooned

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at
