Huge crowd at A and P show


PEOPLE’S Day at the A and P Summer Show at Tahuna Park yesterday was favoured by the best of weather, and the attendance was easily a record, the ground bearing far more the appearance of a race meeting than a show. The visitors must have totalled over 20,000. The jumping competitio­ns were no doubt largely responsibl­e for the amount of interest displayed, but the show as a whole offered much to keep the attention of any crowd well alive. The morning was devoted to the judging of the working draught horses, harness horses, hackneys, cobs and ponies, and after luncheon the competitio­ns were commenced.
