Scope and content

Les and Stella King took these photographs of the Shirt Race, about 1970. They are copied from colour slides. Apart from the old cars, note the ladies wearing stockings with seams; Fleur de Lys hairdressers, The New Inn now called The Morris Clown (changed name 1973) and The Household Stores which was run by Dolly and Eric Stroud who were Stella's parents. There was a really good crowd, the Market Square clearly packed.
