"As for the “two big wooden men carrying a ladder” quote from ‘TheRail
Strike’ we have no lesser authority than Ray and Alan’s agentTessa
LeBars to thank for her answer of: “this is a reference to
anadvertisement at side of railways, usually in fields, in which
twoenormous wooden figures were carrying ladders, probablyadvertising
paint”
"
