Riveted iron
Riveted iron
Both the rail carriage and the tank are made in the old style with rivets - long before welding was brought in. Given that they are in Bristol's old docks area is not perhaps insignificant: the Aardman Animation studios are not far away on Gas Ferry Road, and many Wallace and Gromit films feature this distinctive construction.
