Auction News: Dreamland history...

Perusing the advert for Sunday's Westgate Auction I noticed the entry "large collection of Dreamland memorabilia dating 1950s-1960s, posters etc". Putting on my (virtual) investigative hat I called them for more info. What's up for sale is a whole load of stuff - over a dozen 50s and 60s posters, a framed picture of the Daily Sketch from 1963, lots of photos of stars and some more posters advertising their appearance, all as individual lots.

So look at it two ways - your chance to get a souvenir, or someone's chance to rescue a bit of local history. Viewing is tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday 10-12, auction starts at 12. Don't say you didn't know. Not sure I can make it myself this time, so hopefully someone will let me know how they went...


By the way, I have no connection with Westgate Auctions (except I occasionally spend too much money there), and none with Dreamland (except that I do like old steam and funfair stuff - see my website Galloper.co.uk for the sad evidence).

Thanks Michael, I think I might have seen some of them already, but I'll have another look. And Detling tomorrow, hooray.

And the link to your photos for those in a hurry...
