Tom Thumb Segs

Originally uploaded by a1scrapmetal.
I have recently sent my entire collection of Blakeys (apart the jam jar full of old found ones) to Hasting Art Gallery.
I collected these years ago and they have been in a wooden cabinet packed away since we moved here.
Here are two packets of Tom Thumb fresh and unopened and the other well used.
Segs and blakeys were once more popular and were put on the bottom of shoes to pro-long the life of the sole.
(also good to make pretend tap shoes)

Maybe he was just photocopying them before he sent them along to you...
