Binkie the bear

Binkie has been in the Davenport family, probably since the 1930s or 1940s. Binkie lived at Ivydene, Lewis and Wynne Davenport's family home. The photograph shows him sitting on the piano (which came from Maskelyne's) at Ivydene in 1971 when Wynne Davenport was playing the piano for a young Roy Davenport in the drawing room. Binkie's arms and legs are jointed and, in his youth, he used to growl. As a young child John Davenport was frightened of him - he was too loud and scary!
