Walter Hasland and the Runaway Horse - Infirmary Road, Sheffield - January 1935

I've just posted an article to the site that I have been meaning to do for a few months but have never got around to it, The title "Walter Hasland and the Runaway Horse -Infirmary Road, Sheffield - January 1935"
does not reflect the full horror of the accident that led to Walter losing his life whilst standing outside a shop window with his fiance. The incident even made the pages of  The Times

     
The Times dated 23rd January 1935

It must have been quite literally carnage - "in crashing through the shop window the horse's head was almost severed" gives an indication of the mayhem that occurred.
