150th AnniversaryThis year marks 150 years since the formation of the firm of L. Gardner and Sons. The Etruria Industrial Museum, Stoke on Trent, is pleased to announce that they will be celebrating the anniversary by hosting the Gardner Engine biannual rally over the weekend of Saturday the 15th and Sunday the 16th of September. Numbers have yet to be confirmed; but there are likely to be 20 Gardner engined canal boats on the Caldon Canal beside the Museum, Gardner engined commercial vehicles on the Museum's car park and perhaps 20 Gardner stationary engines on display on the Museum's field. This is in addition to the excellent Etruria Stationary Engine Rally ably organised by Maurice Barks (contact address:- Hillcrest, Dovedale Road, Kingsley, Cheadle, Staffordshire, ST10 2AD, tel; 01538 755844) on Saturday 15th and the Classic Vehicle Rally organised by the Museum on Sunday 16th. There will be a wide variety of exhibits to interest the enthusiast and the general public alike. It promises to be a memorable weekend.
