February 21st 2008: From Crawling to Concorde

Edwin Cuss gave an excellent slide show from his vast collection at this meeting. He covered the topic of transport in Fairford ranging from a delightful picture of him crawling as a baby to nostalgic pictures of Concorde. Prams, wheeled toys, bicycles, motorcycles, tractors, steam powered vehicles, buses, cars and aircraft plus walking all featured with interesting pictures of local people, some of whom were known to the audience. Edwin said he had thought it was going to be an easy selection but when he came to it he found it difficult to choose what to exclude. The talk was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
