It's well known that the LNER promoted its products by mounting substantial exhibitions around its network but I wonder if anyone recognises where this one took place. Gresley's rebuild of Holden's D16 8900 Claud Hamilton is in sparkling condition in this shot taken at an LNER exhibition at Ilford High Road during the weekend of June 2nd and 3rd, 1934. There is an exhibit number 28 visible and not obvious in this reduced size image is a camping coach in the background. No. 8900 was withdrawn from service in 1947 .
