I have three connections with this image, Joe Tunnington was my uncle on my father's side and Derek is my cousin who I haven't seen since the 1940s. My father was given a painting by Joe it was of a Stage Coach and four horses, I can remember is hanging on the wall in our house for years.I spent a lot of time in Rodley when I was a painter, the firm of Marsh Jones & Cribb had contracts for the painting of the inside and outside of Ross Mill's and Smith's Crain works,when I was an apprentice I had to go down into Rodley for cigaretts and fish and chips for the men, I would always walk back to the job on the toll path by the side of the canal.

Joe painted many horses but sadly they have become "lost" to the family. His favorites were those he painted of the Todd's farm horses at Crag Farm, Adel/Alwoodley.
