Photographer's Note

Made after Beatrix Potter's Tailor of Gloucester tale, this model decorated Eastgate Shopping Centre in Gloucester City.

The Tailor of Gloucester - 1903

The Tailor of Gloucester was apparently Beatrix's favourite book. It is based on a true life story of a tailor in the City of Gloucester whom, leaving a waistcoat unfinished one Friday evening, was amazed to find it completed when he returned on Monday morning. In reality, the waistcoat was finished by an assistant, trying to give his master a helping hand. But in her book, Beatrix replaced the assistant with talking mice, and to add to the enchantment of the story, had it pass on Christmas Eve. (from the BBC)
