Jolly copper...

Finn watched in amazement as this Laughing Policeman went about his business. Then, once the 20p had expired and the officer was still again, Finn burst into tears. That was just one of the many joys the little fella experienced down at Hull's splendid Streetlife Museum. There's something altogether disturbing about this kind of automota and I can't watch such things without thinking about how simple those bygone days must have been, if, when you watched this for a minute, you could walk away with a spring in your step feeling entertained. I suppose it was the Ant & Dec or X-Factor of its day.
