Ok, that's it, Betty you are a bad influence, OR I am easily led laugh.gif When I was out this afternoon, I bought not one but TWO 649 tickets and just because the prize is 37million, cost me 4 bucks! So if ye hear girnin an greetin here the morra, ye'll ken ah didnae win an a want ma 4 bucks back! ( Do you think I can keep this gambling fever I have developed under control? ) I just plain got carried away with the fact that a friend won something. So I went over the top and splurged rolleyes.gif BUT I think I can still buy the groceries etc. for the next week, despite my "fling".

Tongue in cheek here y'all as all the auld yins know.

PostPosted: Fri Apr 27, 2007 8:41 pm Post subject: McArdles fair in Inverness 1940's/50's Reply with quote
I remember seeing somewhere in the archive copies of the Inverness Courier an advert for a fair being held on the Bught Park Inverness in the late 1940's or early 1950's. I'm sure McArdles motor cycle speedway and mont-blanc were the main attractions and I think a chairoplane was also noted, (John Coats?). What made this advert really interesting was another advert on the same page for Joe Leonard's fair open at the same time also on the Bught Park.
Does anyone know anything of the back ground to this? There must have been a big collection of amusements between the two fairs.
Gallusbisom
Melody hen, You have just knocked my socks off ( so to speak). My Mum's Uncle Johnny was indeed a Coats or Coates (we have two spellings of the family name) and he was directly related to another well known Glasgow show family. My Great Aunty Bridget fell in love, at a very young age, with G. Uncle Johnny and they were show people and lived in Caravans, G Auntie Bridget died giving birth to her 11th child. He never recovered. BUT I know, from my Mum that their kids drove motor cars (at the time you still wore leather helments) and motorcyles. The most interesting part being that the GIRLS did it too, which was unusaul at that time. ( circa 1930's) Could be a connection here.

I got shivers noo.

my sis{lennox} does the family research. and there's a john coates there wi motorbikes.
also a James, who,we think may be more of a mystery than just an uncle. She had a lead wan time that led to Inverness,but she wisny sure.so I dont know if she followed it up. it wid be funny if we were aw related. Mind you if you met me you might no think it wis funny then. heheheh

sorry for jist jumpin in here I am being nosey and looking at everything.
