JUKE BOX MADNESS was held last weekend 10/11 OCTOBER 2009 at KEMPTON PARK RACECOURSE near to HEATHROW AIRPORT near LONDON

It is called JUKE BOX MADNESSS because there are lots of JUKE BOXES there for sale.........mostly receonditioned but occasionally available for you to do it yourself

The fair itself is a celebration of the 1950's.....with momrabelia old gramahones radiogramms........... LADIES SHOES ! !!???? etc

I took pictures of 10 JUKE BOXES plus cars......... pin ball machines etc.which I shall post over the next few days

The fair was on three floors with a fourth floor for refrehments

This fourth floor had panoramic views of the racecourse .which was surrounded by a bank of trees on all lsides............over the top of these trees the sky was BLUE and from out of that sky there was a constatnt stream of airlineers coming in to land at HEATHROW


On the third floor there were live groups and JIVE dancing lessons

Wow! Very nice!

I'm old enough to remember the "good old days" with a jukebox in every bar. Not that I was ever a "barfly" of course. Smile
