A final polish.

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is Toys.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of my photos from a steam fair in Cheshire, England in the 1980s. Taken early one morning, the exhibitors were either lighting the fireboxes of their machines or were giving them a final polish. There’s four people polishing various parts of this steam roller.

Big boys and their big toys.
