As our 40th Anniversary approaches, more and more people are coming forward with their special memories and stories of the market: amazing discoveries and life changing events.
Yes, life changing events! For example, a couple that was married 15 years ago at the Market are planning to make the trip to Market this weekend.
Just this week a local family was clearing a room and came across a bunch of photographs from 1986. We we just a youngster then, a mere 10 years old.
Now the photos, taken by Ivan Narandja whilst a media student at Rusden College. Are themselves three decades old.
The original photos, in framed large format, will be on display at the Rotary Stall tomorrow at the Market and are available for sale.
What do see in these photos that peaked your interest? Leave a comment below.
For us, it’s the more things change, the more they stay the same! Apart from being three decades old and in black & white, these could well have been taken last weekend!
