Dudley Ramblers From the Scrapbook

OK. So how many of you knew there was a Dudley Rambler's Scrapbook? Thought so. It is in two volumes and is currently in my keeping. It was meticulously kept by erstwhile club secretary Harold Yates and when he left the club it was passed into my stewardship. Unfortunately this coincided with the birth of the web site which has superseded it. I came across it recently and thought I would put some of the content on the site. Many in the photos are no longer with us but there are some who you will recognise in a younger guise. Enjoy.
