1979 - Moth Rally - Strathallan

Postby Gloria Finis » Wed Jun 07, 2017 7:04 pm

Found a few more photographs of the Moth Rally, held at Strathallan, Perthshire, on 30 June and 1 July 1979.

Sorry for the poor quality, as these were taken with a small format Kodak 110 camera, but the scans from 4.5" x 3.5" prints may be of interest to some members.

In my opinion when it comes to nostalgic photos then content invariably outweighs image quality. Plus they better suit the period too.

Hi Gloria,

Great to see these - I was there and took around 70 colour 35mm shots. The quality of the machine-processed prints wasn`t very good, and unfortunately, during a pre-digital era clear out I binned all the negatives. With a PC and some work on Photoshop I could have no doubt obtained some decent images.

From what I remember, it was a super event and with the Museum still open there were plenty of planes around - Many thanks for posting.

I was there too, for some strange reason I didn't take a camera. :grr:
Plenty of good nostalgic shots there, thanks for posting them. :thumb:
