THE incredibly detailed knowledge of their subjects exhibited by the experts in the BBC television Antiques Roadshow series is matched only by their enthusiasm for thE objects on which they are askec to discourse. A valuer who was shown a metal clockwork mode of a Foden six-wheeler by a boy at Lancaster bubbled with delight and opined that it was made between the wars.
If it was, it must have been thl egg from which the chicken wa! hatched. I placed the design at about 1950. The radiator was certainly not one that I recall before the 1939-45 war. But wh( am Ito quibble over a few years when a man of culture can wax lyrical over a model lorry, of all things?
