Jimmy the Pony Driver
Jimmy lived in Croydon in the 1880s.

He drove a pony and trap for Alice Davis,
who ran a family business
selling timber in South Croydon.

Jimmy's main job was as a driver
to Alice Davis.
She thought very highly of him.

As well as driving Alice around,
Jimmy looked after the ponies.
He would feed and groom them
and take them to the blacksmiths
when their shoes needed repairing.
