Hand Bill Trivia... (That's billhooks if your not from round 'ere!)

I found this slip of an old magazine cutting in a book the other day. I want to post it just for the love of billhooks (don't say it too quickly). The article just had a bit of blurb about the origins but it was this line drawing by the author that I found remarkable. The shear number of hand bills from a tiny island is incredible and the detail appears very accurate. All credit to Jack Wilson 1982.

Some action photographs of THE FIRST spectator sport... Jackie Gilligan does a fantastic job of capturing the energy and enjoyment of a laying day.
