Leek Show winners

Two prize winners at a Leek Show displaying their impressive vegetables alongside a couple of equally impressive mantel clocks, presumably their prizes. The North East tradition of growing leeks and other large vegetables has its roots in the region's mining heritage, when it offered pitmen a welcome hobby out in the fresh air. In recent years, there has been a decline in leek shows, once a vibrant part of North Eastern heritage and community. Date: c.1910

Flying for the Summer Week-end by C.E. Turner

Illustration from 1928 by C.E. Turner reflecting the growing rise of civilian flying in the 1920s. The caption reads,'...only last month there was a house-party at which the ten guests (all owners of 'planes) arrived from London and Canterbury in five 'Moths' and a 'Widgeon.' The landings were made in the host's grounds, and the little flying-machines were housed in the ordinary car garages. On the Sunday, the host adn hostess, accompanying their guests, the whole party flew from Cirencester to Lambourne Down, in Berkshire, for a picnic. Our drawing does not illustrate a particular event, at which Mr and Mrs. Fitzgerald, or Marsden Manor, Cirencester, were the hosts but it is typical.'
