Historical Russell Woodard Mega Haul

Back in August 2017 i answered a local advert to buy some familiar looking chairs... Having had a few pieces of this unusual woven fibreglass furniture over the years, i knew immediately what it was... a very durable range of garden furniture, designed by Russell Woodard. When i contacted the seller, i had no idea how much i would find when i went to collect 'a few chairs'.
