Admiration is really growing
It had been a poor season for gardeners, but that didn’t stop them producing a crop of beautiful blooms.
Entries in all classes at Cowley Conservative Club’s horticultural show in 1971 were high, despite rain and a lack of sunshine that summer.
Two visitors to the show, Lydia Jones, 14, left, and Karen Bayes, 16, are seen here admiring prize-winning gladioli.
