CORGI 1/43 LAND ROVER - HARRIS'S GALLOPERS


The present day Harris's Old Tyme Fair is run by brothers Ted, Robert, John and Fred.Tracing their origins to great - grandfather John Harris, of Chuckfield, Sussex (1833 - 1901) a timber merchant and haulier who also operated a Doby set of horses in the summer months .Frederick Harris, son and grandfather whose name is still carried on the Gallopers he built, moved to Ashington, Sussex in 1901 and the brothers continue to operate out of this original yard.

Back to a British circus for this attractive Land Rover and trailer set, which fatures some clever printing but a rather plasticky flag. A fun piece to add to the collection. Shop here
