The fair was on three floors with a fourth floor for refrehments

This fourth floor had panoramic views of the racecourse .which was surrounded by a bank of trees on all lsides............over the top of these trees the sky was BLUE and from out of that sky there was a constatnt stream of airlineers coming in to land at HEATHROW


On the third floor there were live groups and JIVE dancing lessons

Wow! Very nice!

I'm old enough to remember the "good old days" with a jukebox in every bar. Not that I was ever a "barfly" of course. :)
