Back to the 40's!

Last weekend on our way home from Yorkshire we drove into the next dale to visit my brother and sister-in-law.
They live in the pretty little town of Grassington.
And guess what? It was yet another 40's weekend!
It was an ideal venue because no traffic was allowed through the main streets.

We had a wander round the town at midday as the 'promenaders' and 're-enactors' were tucking in to lunch.
We had seen this 'spiv' at the Leyburn event in the summer. Now he had sensibly added a warm coat to his outfit. "Not 40's prices!" he remarked of his drink of coffee.

Family groups were again on display

and some very strange fantasies were being enacted!
"Are you a nun in disguise?" Himself wanted to know.
