Here’s an interesting thing that top local history monkey [Howmuch?] bought at a book fayre last week. It’s the program for the Fourth Annual Steam & Vintage Vehicle Rally, held by Chasewater Light Railway Society on the weekend of 21st & 22nd June 1980.
I know this will probably be of interest to Chasewaterstuff and Oakparkrunner particularly – but I’m hoping some of the adverts will stir memories, too. Sunday dinner at the Wilkin for £3 a pop all in, Geoff Parker Models and the Steam Railway in the Arboretum Extension – whatever happened to that, eh?
I would also be nice to see folk’s comments on the exhibits, what and who’s still around. There’s also an amusing bit of sexism in the description of the auto jumble.
Click on the cover to download the booklet in PDF form, and cheers to the boy [Howmuch?] for his lovely scans.
