Ally Pally 2017
« on: January 28, 2017, 04:55:48 PM »
As of 01 January of this year, I am officially retired... so had to time for a quick trip to London.  Went to a recital at St Martin in the Fields, saw Les Mis at the Queen's Theater, and spent most of Sunday at the Ally Pally for the exhibition... bought some books, a few bits of tooling, a couple of spare flywheels (and, keeping peace in the family, brought back some Jaffa cakes for my son's girlfriend).

Here are some of the photos:














more to follow...
