Hartlepools and District Horse Slaughtering

What we know about this image :

Photo possibly taken near Seaton Carew. In 1935, a postcard of this image was sent to a Mr Cramon of Castle Eden who apparently owned the horse and it informed him of the death of the horse from TB of the  lungs. The horse slaughterer on the picture was James Herring of 95 Oxford Road. (this card is detailed in George Colley's Yesterday Once More)
