Aintree Races A Fine Day Out

There has been a lot of excited comment and titillating photo's in the media of members of the plebeian classes, notably female, taking over the Aintree Races for their amusement.

So, what's new?  

Above is a 1937 picture of the patrician classes who also liked a bevvy or ten on a good day out at the races.  I was there, at least down on the Melling Road, when the Royal Car went past and was told got a cheerful wave and smile from the lady.

Sadly, the memory has been lost.  Perhaps I had a few lemonades too many.

    Quite a few of mine have been lost too. The trouble is I can't remember which.
