William Fagan article on his Fathers Baldina Camera
23rd February 2015
This is a link to an article which William Fagan has put on Mike Evan's (a fellow Circle D Member) excellent website. It does have a Leica context in that an article by Mike about a receipt for a Leica IIIc bought in 1952 reminded William of a similar receipt for a Super Baldina bought by his father in 1940. It was the use of a stamp to 'authenticate' the transaction that really drew his attention to this. This led to himy looking again at his fathers photos taken with the camera. The photos in the article capture a traditional way of life that has completely changed over the last 70 years. The photo of William as a young fellow is only there because what we call 'saving hay' is called 'hay making' in England. See Mike's explanation.

AN INVITATION TO TAKE PART IN THIS YEARS PRINT AND PDI CHAMPIONSHIPS.

Please find attached your invitation and a set of Rules for this years Print and PDI Championship to be held at Leicester Forrest on Saturday 25th April 2015.

This is a Major Event in the MCPF calendar and should not be missed. If your club has not competed previously why not give it a try this year. There is a special award for small clubs and 9 Individual Medals to be won in addition to the main club trophies. The event usually plays to a packed audience and it is also a great social day when you meet members from other competing clubs.

The top two clubs in each of the competitions will also be offered the chance to compete in the PAGB Inter Club Championships held later in the year.
(This excludes any club that were finalists at the PAGB Championships last year as they are already invited by right)

I look forward to hearing that your club wishes to take part
15 Clubs have already registered.
