#007-365 Accessories

In my post "Bent" I showed a tree and commented that the Redcliffe Showgrounds was used by Carneys (Carnival People) as a lay-over area in between shows, well this must be one of those periods just now as there are a few in residence, which is good as vandals don't affect the place when those boys are in residence and it provides some useful revenue for the upkeep of the showground.

This is one rig I had never noticed before and as you can see it is stunning, there is a matching prime mover behind the trailer, with like decoration but to show that I would have had to show the living arrangements of those who travel and reside in this trailer. R.M. Williams was a Stockmans outfitter, who set up business over 75 years ago and made his name and fortune by only providing QUALITY Accessories to our drovers and other stockmen, I won't say he invented them but he was instrumental in the development of elastic sided riding boots and I would never have business dealings with anyone who tells you differently as they are a bit careless with the truth.

That's a really cool shot, Ron. I like the way the vehicles are lined up just so. Great contrast in the image and nice vibrant colors too..

If you have a truck like that, you definitely need that kind of accessory to go with it! Great shot and idea for the theme.

Such a great truck and trailer. Your shot is great to show off the paint job. WOW I never knew carnnies made that much money - that accessory cost as much as a good house I am sure. And a truck to match. Nice catch.
