1950s Childhood Laing Spirit Rail Transport Waving


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a moment of pure joy and excitement during a Laing sports day at Elstree's Laing Sports Ground in Greater London. The image showcases a group of children eagerly taking a ride on the enchanting miniature train known as The Continental Express. As they embark on this whimsical journey, their faces are adorned with beaming smiles and waves to the camera. The event itself was a grand affair, drawing participants from various Laing contracts across Thurleigh, Bradford, Harlow, Shell Haven, London, Welwyn Garden City, Leicester, and even Plymouth. It was an opportunity for employees and their families to come together and celebrate through field and track competitions alongside special attractions such as Scottish dancing performances, a vibrant flower show display, gymnastic demonstrations that left spectators in awe. Adding to the festive atmosphere was the delightful music provided by the Silver Band of the 5th Hendon Company Boys Brigade. This nostalgic scene takes us back to the 1950s when childhood memories were made amidst laughter-filled train rides. Preserved within this print is not just an image but also the spirit of Laing - fostering camaraderie among its employees while creating cherished moments for families. Let it serve as a reminder of simpler times filled with innocent fun aboard miniature trains that ignited imaginations and created lasting memories for generations to come.
