It's a Ted's life



Teddy Bear Derby-Woodhouse

This is Mr Derby-Woodville

(He's a large Chad Valley 1930's

Teddy Bear)

He had fallen on hard times from

a strange and unknown history. His repeated injuries left him with multi layered patches which suggests he may have been a mascot  - maybe on a goal post or a lorry.

Can anyone throw light on his former life?
