More from Wraysbury fair.

I couldn't resist the vintage cars and bikes that are on display at the fair;

This is an Indian - a legendary American bike from the 1920's, here in tricycle form. If you look at this link you can see the big bikes in real action;

Here's a Police car from the 1950's while this is a little faster - a Bugatti;

This is much cooler, it's a Caterham 7 and although it only has a normal car engine it's really fast because it's very light;

I always get very nostalgic about working vehicles from another age. There's a family locally who specialise in restoring trucks and lorries to 'factory new' condition but they weren't exhibiting this year. This is a Post office (actually telephone) van from the 1950's to 1960's; 

All the equipment and everything else you could think of;

Finally, from the Arts and Crafts tent;

A superhero made of vegetables (well why not?) from the under 11's.
