Interesting article, and great photographs. I always wondered why he never sold anything.

For those who know his present day shop (or remember the original one) you'll understand what I mean when I say that that gibbon thing in his window must be positively ancient by now! He used to put speech bubbles coming out of its mouth saying things like "...got any old stuff for Old Daly?".

The guy must be quite a character.

I hope this guy has had apprentices, lots of them over the years (though he probably hasnt) because he must have acquired so much knowledge, so many little tricks and secrets about everything to do with all the different woods, tools and furniture still around from the past. So much skill and know-how to be saved. Interesting article thanks.

Remember going into his other shop with my mother to buy a tap and she asked if he had a 'good tap' and he said 'would you know a good tap if you saw one?'. We walked out and went to Tom Trott in Poulton Road who sold us one with no questions asked.
