The Formerly-Known-As-The-Eye-Show, Palgrave, Suffolk - 17th June 2018

The show that started at as a re-homed Eye Show but is now known as something generic but clearly far less memorable, like "wheels through the ages" or whatever, rolls into Palgrave for another year. Fred suggested that we cycle over, so we did, braving the swarms of small beetle things that would settle onto our hi-viz gear in their hundres if we so much as stopped anywhere for more than a few seconds. Once there, we found a mixture of vintage cars, traction engines, wholesome agricultural pursuits such as tractor pulling and chain-saw sculpture, Clive in his US Army truck and Rachel driving Andrew's Fordson tractor as "a lady". It seemed like there was a good turnout, despite of - or perhaps because of - the cooler weather.
