Lad­der Of Suc­cess

The People's Friend - - Puzzles 83 -

I en­joyed see­ing the paint­ing and read­ing the story in the Be­tween Friends sec­tion about the man who makes lad­ders.

My fa­ther used to make lad­ders on re­quest. He would use a fir tree and saw it straight down the mid­dle (no mean feat). He then used the spokes from re­dun­dant cart­wheels to make the rungs.

All I know is the long lad­der fea­tured in the paint­ing would have taken a bit of han­dling!

Mr B.R., Peter­bor­ough.
