Thread: Hi from Martin Edinborough

  1. #1

    Cool Hi from Martin Edinborough

    I was pointed at this page after posting some of my late father-in-laws photos from the Pukekohe 30th anniversary event and the Peter Styvesant NZIGP.

    Pat Lambert was assistant starter to Laurie Powell for a good many years and has taken many photos.

    The photos and 35mm slides have started to decay so I scanned some of the better ones and have put them up on Facebook.

    I have started uploading them to this site. I will be continuing to do so as time permits.

    I also have some photos and a Kodak photo paper box that is full of black and white negatives, these need to be scanned and uploaded.

    I was a member of NSCC for a few years and was involved with events ranging from Gymkhanas at Dunkirk Road, Peter Hildreths farm, hillclimbs at Cosseys farm, National Rallys and marshalling at multiple rally venues in the Northern half of New Zealand.

    Hi Grant,
    Many of us have also fallen in love with 'Edinburgh' (capital of Scotland) over the years, but I think 'Edinborough' is Martin's surname, not location.
    By the way, welcome aboard Martin. You'll enjoying browsing The Roaring Session.
    Cheers, John

    Thanks John for correction , I seem to speed read & do not read with ease , a problem I always had

    No problem Grant. You're not the only one with that problem. There seems to be a direct correlation between my increasing age, and decreasing reading ability - funny that! John.
