Hi Dylan; must say that I had heard that there would be no working plant field this year, I don't know if anybody else can confirm this? I won't be making the trip down there this year and have my hands full at the moment.

Yes the W.H. Malcolm photo :thumbup: look at the boom fork ends on these 580C machines; this was the early design that gave trouble cracking.

They never used to bother stripping properties out in those days it was more of a case of just whack it down as quick as you can and clear the site; no recycling and also no asbestos survey!

Re: The way we were

Another super period photo :claphands: part of me wishes I could just 'step into it' because it brings back so many memories, not just how work on the high st was once done but seeing good old 'Woolworths' and a high st 'Currys' in the background makes me want to go back in time and have a good look...

Re: Classic pictures Updated 18/08/2019

Superb pics Steve :thumbup: :bow: the first two on the first lot show Hymac 880 machines :rockon: and the 580 in the last photo on the first lot is very interesting in that somebody has stuck a 580C engine canopy on it.

My thoughts too; so much better if only things were like that again.
