“Old Rallies” Rushden Steam Rally, 4th May (2003)

Browsing through my photos for the “on this day” post, I’ve just come across the first steam rally photos for any of the years. I was only at the rally for a couple of hours, having watched a lot of Land Rovers on a run from Solihull to Gaydon earlier in the day. I took over 400 photos, not great quality, but I’ve chosen 12 for a bit of variety from the day. My knowledge of road vehicles is minimal, which explains lack of descriptions!
Photos below:-

The first photo is one from the Land Rover run near Solihull, the rest from the Rushden Rally.

    I was very “snap happy” at rallies, took photos of just about everything – forgotten most of the rallies I went to but looking at the photos does bring back some pleasant memories.
