February 15th 2007: Along the River Coln in Fairford

Despite technical difficulties Edwin Cuss gave an interesting and informative illustrated talk on views along the River Coln through Fairford. The photographs spanned well over a century, the earliest being 1858. He pointed out important sighting landmarks such as the gas works chimney and the Church and useful dating clues such as costume and the size of trees. One of the more recent pictures was of several youths sitting on the town bridge, one of whom was sitting in the audience much older and wiser!

We were very grateful to the member who lent a substitute projector that enabled the talk to continue. Edwin was very disappointed that his equipment let him down and has offered to give us another talk on a different topic in 2008.
