25 Years of the SSVC - A Photographic History

Post by Doc » Sun Oct 14, 2007 6:32 pm

Next year will mark the 25th Anniversary of the Split Screen Van Club and there will be many ways in which this will be celebrated.
What we're really missing on the site is a history of the club, so to try and fill this gap I've had an idea....

How about a photographic history?

It would be great to have some photos (with a little bit of text) from each of the years covering such things as:
  • Club line ups at shows
    Club camping weekends
    Seedlings activities
    Key milestones
    Vans of the year
    Founder members (and founder members buses)
    Anything relevant to the history of the club
Each year will have it's own thread, I've made a sample here for 2005......
viewtopic.php?p=259842

Some of the early years may be difficult as digital images are a recent thing so we'll have to rely on scanned photos.

If you can post your name, some description, a not too large image (800x600), ideally with a link to a full size picture that would be great. (see the link above for a very poor example)


Once (if) we get enough photos I'll start pulling them together into a site.

As a little project/idea it may not work but I think it will be cool if it does. If we get a really good response it may even be possible to pull them together into a book.

Feel free to share any ideas you have on this.

Is it just me that thinks it's a good idea?

SORRY!!!

Obviously all the old stuff is not digi and I have not yet found the time to sort anything out. I will try as I am sure I must have some stuff of Amanda doing things with the children (seedlings) in the early days (10 years ago) and I am not sure what I might have of 20 years ago but I promise I will look this week.

Hi Doc,

I've got a load of scanned old images of the club from when I borrowed them from someone (can't remember who now) to help sort out a stand display for the 20th anniversary back when I was on the committee.

Not sure on all of the years though???

And I've got scanned in front covers of the club magazine (one for each year) from 83 - 03 if they're of any use??

Stuff like this:

All the photo's copys were printed A4 and laminated by me too and last time I saw them I think they were given back to the club via Rikki in a boxfile (possibly).

One of the committee prob has them kicking about somewhere???

If this is kinda what ya want let me know and I'll see what I can dig out

Regards

Dave

Take it you don't have the boxfile then dude?

Hmm I had a funny feeling that you didn't have it actually.

It was with the balloons and ribbons an stuff I think???

Trouble is I'm trying to remember 5 years ago and my memory is poo!!

I just remembered using them with your display boards you loaned us for Bromley Motor Pagent that time.

Might be worth you pinging out a smartgroup committee email mate incase anyone has it coz it deff went back to the club through someone?? (i would, but I can't coz I'm not part of the group no more).

I'll ask Jon tomorrow incase he knows of their whereabouts OK
