Avra Bennett – To Ride A Cock Horse

Avra Bennett sat astride a beautiful white horse from the pages of Kamera No.40 (1962). Avra appeared in Solo No.18, Kamera No.33, No.34, No.37, No.40, No.52 & No.66. She also appeared in the early glamour films ‘The Strip’ (Part 1 ) and ‘The Strip’ (Part 2), ‘After the Show’ and ‘Models Mechanics’ with Paula Page. She also appears in an outdoor set of photo’s with Paula, of which a couple appear in Kamera No.40.

The title is a reference to the nursery rhyme “Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross”, which also happens to be my home town.  The full rhyme (should you care) is:

Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
And she shall have music wherever she goes.

    • Ha ha, but FYI – &quot;cock horse&quot; can mean a high-spirited horse, and the additional horse to assist pulling a cart or carriage up a hill. From the mid-sixteenth century it also meant a pretend hobby horse or an adult&#39;s knee. So you can read whatever you like into the mean from this rhyme!

    • And who said we waste our time on sites like this? I learn something new every day, and look forward to using this information at any occasion where it is relevant. I&#39;ll have to ponder what that might be, but thanks Wonder.<br /><br />David
