The Dance

By Fefe
Hello everyone, been busy over the last two weeks or so, with one thing and another, not been away on holiday but had a few days out.
Easter Monday was a trip to Tramway Museum at Crich, unfortunately there was a special 40's event on over the Easter weekend which made our ticket not valid , we knew about it but had forgotten 🙄😣
So I took a few images through the fence anyway 😉 No idea what dance they were doing but they were very good 😃
Its been a long time since I have seen a 40's event, we used to go to the Pickering one and dress up too, great fun!
This one I managed without anyone dressed in modern day clothing, its so annoying when modern folk get in the way 🤨🤨

Massive thank you to everyone for C&C and UA's on my last upload 'Black Paddles' and to Oliver 'bliba' for the GEA on that!
Really appreciated!

Thank you Jukka.
The one on your left is a 'Bedford' Ambulance Jukka.

The one on your right is also and ambulance but I can't quite make out if its 'Austin' (this info comes from some other images taken not this one.)

Very well captured, Diane 👍🏻😃 I've been to a couple of 40's events over the years in Haworth, which is great for photography, but as you say, they're so popular and it's hard not to include people in modern clothing 😬
