Pack­ing a punch a cen­tury ago

Shooting Times & Country Magazine - - CONTENTS -

When my fa­ther David was a teenager in the late 1920s, he per­suaded his older sis­ter Mar­garet to take home a suit­case for him. This in­volved her strug­gling with it across Lon­don, board­ing a train to Ch­ester, then chang­ing on to a branch line be­fore fi­nally ar­riv­ing at their home in Bod­fari, Cl­wyd.

When he duly ar­rived home a few days later and the case was opened, she was not at all pleased to dis­cover that all it con­tained was 52 copies of Shoot­ing Times. Clearly the con­tents of the mag­a­zine were a weighty mat­ter even then.
