“Edwin Jones 9:20-10:45 – CANCELLED”

The uppercase was me SHOUTING as far back as 1972.

Yes, it was my big Scalextric “race off” against the big boys at Edwin Jones department store in Southampton, and… and… and…. it was bloomin’ cancelled! 

However, when you think about it logically, there was no point in sending little plastic cars – controlled by electricity – round a Scalextric track if there was going to be a power cut in the middle of it!
