Wakefield Photos
 


In the hope of "Putting a face to the name" so to speak.  I present this collection of Wakefield pictures.  All of the subjects are recreations of  a bygone time.

 The pictures were found on the internet and to a very large extend in the SAM1066 "New Clarion"  digital newsletter.  I have also been blessed that some modelers of Wakefields have supplied many pictures for this album.

 The information included with the photos is that which came with the pictures.  Unfortunately do not have the full information on the models per say.

I am always delighted to receive new pictures for the album.
Please look around and any information you might have or questions, please E-mail me at          wakefieldkid@verizon.net
