As a lad I loved going to Temple Newsam traction engine rally, seeing what seemed to me giant traction engines machines puffing away and smelling of that most glorious of smells; industrial steam. Sadly this year I couldn’t attend as my child was something like 3-4 weeks old and it was raining.
So my mum and dad found a smaller Rally at Lotherton Hall which was at a bit of better time for us. Although it’s smaller it still had that same draws of vintage cars, bikes and trucks as well as stationary engines, tractors and of course the huge traction engines and steam rollers.
The images I took were of my best bits of the rally, the only addition I would have made was a real ale tent, would have fitted right in and the presence of a non-real ale bar was just well …odd, anyway enjoy the photos and comment on this blog and flickr!
