Market Lavington Flower Show of 1999

Yesterday we made use of a newspaper article from the 1973. Today we have another newspaper article and it provides an opportunity to see how newspaper printing technology improved in the last quarter of the twentieth century – particularly with regard to photographs.

This article, from the same paper, The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald, is about Market Lavington’s 1999 flower and produce show.

On the right we can see a clear and sharp photo of three prize winning ladies, but let’s concentrate on the written article on the left.

Paul Mehra, who won the photographic section that year proudly displays his film camera and a photo – and even enlarged the press photo remains pretty sharp. The quality is hugely better than the photo we saw yesterday of Peggy Gye with her ‘Look Back’ exhibition.

We understand that plans are well in hand for the 2015 show which will be in the Community Hall on Saturday 5th September.
