Remember this marvellous picture from a few weeks ago?

I asked if anyone could suggest why a cowboy was riding along Clarendon Street, Landport.

Turns out it was none other than the American star of many westerns, Tom Mix.

According to 86-year-old Arthur Jewer, Mix, who died in 1940, was appearing at the old Hippodrome at the time

Arthur and his friend Sid Byng had to look after the horse which was stabled in a yard in Belgrave Street.
