I’ve not had a great deal of spare time of late and I have not uploaded some of my more recent photographs. Going back a month; on Sunday 15 September I went along to Birkenhead Park to see the annual Birkenhead Festival of Transport.
The Festival always features a popular traditional funfair.
The weather was wet and windy and the planned Battle of Britain Memorial flight, which was to have performed a ‘fly past’ featuring a Lancaster bomber, had to be cancelled.
But there were a number of other attractions to photograph.
There were a range of road going steam engines as well as a Ffestiniog railway engine and carriage operating on a short piece of narrow gauge track.
There were three steam powered street organs.
The historic vehicle rally included a range of cars, vans, military vehicles and motor bikes from yesteryear.
Whilst I missed the dog show I did manage to catch the American Civil War re-enactment group who, as well as marching, presented their bayonets and loaded their muskets and fired a few deafening rounds into the air.
There was a stage which featured a number of performers. Unfortunately for the Chester Brass Band the weather did not attract many spectators for their performance.
