Memories of the carnival

First published in Letters

THANK you for showing pictures of the carnival in 1959.

It brought a smile to the face of my uncle when I told him that he was in the Andover Advertiser this week – he was ‘Liberace’.

He lives in Andover and is 83 years old now, and unfortunately not in very good health, but has fond memories of those past carnivals.

He entered many of the carnivals, usually accompanied by his bicycle, but on this occasion on foot.

I, too, entered the children’s carnival the same year dressed in a ‘cat and the fiddle’ outfit; those were the days!

Maybe we can dig into our albums and find some more memories to publish.

Diana Jones, Andover
