This is a 1932 Morris with Tube Shooter Wagon at 1/16 Scale (one sixteenth of the original size) made by Herbert Haines.
One of Herberts Haines' interests is building models of full sized wagons and fairground rides which he has been doing for over 45 years. All the models can be taken apart and and packed into their own trailers. In the background of this photo (behind the yellow vehicle) is a model of a 1921 Phillips built wagon once owned by Tommy Manning of Clacton. It is believed that the original owner of the full sized version of this was Billy Butlin.
