A Clean Sweep1

I can assure you that these weren't about in my day but I couldn't resist taking some pictures of this chimney sweeps trike that was on display at Chatsworth on Sunday.

It's very basic innit? no Sat Nav or CD player.  

They were the start of the Reliant {DeL Boys} favourite.

Did the job though.
remember ooh! so well the chimney sweeps turning up at Ma and Pa's house.
Especially after the chimney had fired up....    
Great fun for us kids, whole neighbour hood of kids waiting for the brushes to appear out the top stack...

We had a chimney seep that could do a bit of ventriloquism, and for years he had me shouting up the chimney telling father Christmas what presents I wanted.

I must be a new fashioned soul as our chimney sweep at the old farm arrived with a vacuum cleaner set up - parents said it made a lot less mess.

Ours is a council sweep he uses brushes and a good tidy job he does too

Don't know that our neck o' the woods ever had your version of a chimney sweep-def never the trike pictured here! Love learnin history! (No matter the country )
