Northamptonshire Agricultural Show at Rushden : The Last Visit
Warm Welcome to the Society by Local People
Varied Attractions at the Show Ground
The annual show of the Northamptonshire Agricultural Society was held at Rushden yesterdayin a field situated on the Kimbolton-roadfor the fourth time since the inception of the Society, well back in the last century.
Particular interest was attached to the Show this year, however, as this was the last occasion before the Society settles down at its permanent home at Kettering, where a show ground has been acquired.
Unfortunately there was no Royal visitor this year (it will be remembered that Prince Henry favoured the town and Society with a visit in 1927, when the Show was last held in Rushden), and further, the President of the Society, Mr. Victor Emmanuel, found it impossible to return from the United States to be present.
The excellent work of the local officials was described fully in our special Show Supplement last week, and further reference is made in our report below. [not transcribed]
