A promotional photograph of the Bridges Home Workshop Tool Kit and accesories, taken by an unknown photographer for the Daily Herald newspaper in 1960. Do-It-Yourself tool kits like this were part of a rapidly growing industry in the late 1950s and early 1960s as people became more confident in tackling jobs around the home and there was more encouragement for them to do so through D.I.Y magazines. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
