Details of the Rowell Fair – May 27th, 1921

Our thanks to Michael Wells

Our thanks to Michael Wells who sent us a scan of an article from The Midland Mail newspaper about our Rowell Fair dated May 27th, 1921! What a find!

It’s a fascinating read and describes in great detail, our iconic event from over 100 years ago.

The original scan can be a little tricky to read on some PC screens and so we’ve also transcribed the content (minus the photographs). Both the original and the transcription are below. Let us know what you think by dropping us a line HERE
