Isle of Wight County Show, July 1999 Pictures

The County Show

Entrance to the annual show held on the Newport show ground.

One of the many sources of refreshment at the show.

Fire Service Demonstration

I know the dangers of chip pan fires but above is a graphic demonstration. Half a cup of water produced the fireball, about 10 seconds after it was thrown in. The scorched earth gives some idea of the range of the fire. The moral is do not throw water on fat fires.

Around the show and in the main ring

Helicopter rides.


If you read the James Bond novels this Bentley is the car he drives. His is grey rather than British Racing Green. A lovely machine whatever the colour.

A procession of cars through the years waiting to enter the main ring.

Show jumping competition in its own arena.

Horse drawn trade wagon in the main ring.

Go-kart racing for the kids.

Steam traction being one of my loves there had to be a couple of shots of the traction engines at the show.

Medina Marching Band waiting to enter the ring and then in action.

Livestock at the show.

Spinning some of the wool.


Unfortunately it was too hot for a display of falconry the day I went to the show. Above you see some of the birds trying to keep cool.
