Landmark hobby.

TOM CAVE's magic carpets took him on a trip around the world.

The retired platelayer from Houghtonle-Spring, Tyne & Wear, took up making rugs that depicted famous landmarks from around the world in 1970.

Mr Cave, seen here in April 1971 in a photograph taken from the Chronicle archives, had already completed carpets featuring the Taj Mahal, the Sahara, Durham Cathedral and Penshaw Monument.

The next project in the pipeline for Mr Cave was to be a carpet depicting Venice, which he believed would be his most difficult work to date.
