Crying for County Show Cakes

We like cakes and we like the County Show.

Imagine our delight therefore, when we found a copy of James Flett & Sons' bakery production list for the 1979 show.

We are very noble at Orkney Archive and, although it is every member of staff's dearest wish to spend tomorrow whirling about in a tea-cup, drunk, with cream and jam all over our faces, in the company of tractors, two of us will be manning the archive desk.

Just... manning the desk. With no cakes. No booze. No tea cups. No tractors. Just crying.

We may have complained about this before...
