We had a fabulous day on Saturday in Pickering for the annual 1940's weekend.
We were just in time to see a train pulling into the station bringing lots of passengers all dressed in 1940's attire,
"Stanley" had all the ladies swooning over him!!
We listened to a rousing speech from Sir Winston Churchill
before making our way up to the town,
we passed a lovely fruit and veg van on the way
and a newly wed GI bride,
the milkman was delivering pints of milk.
Lots of mum's had their babies out in the fresh air,
and the spivs were out selling their wares,
By now we were ready for a pot of tea so we went into the vintage tea room that's owned by the lovely Anne from "made and found" blog,
we were lucky as there was a table for two in the corner so we ordered a pot of tea and sausage rolls with chutney
Cheryl-ann from "Taylor made in England" blog was our waitress and it was nice to meet up with bloggy friends.
Back outside I stopped people to ask to take their photo,
a policeman stopped a family who looked like they were doing a moon light flit
and found a incendiary bomb in the pram!
All too soon it was back to the station to wave our sweet hearts goodbye.
