LOCAL NEWS: MELTON MOWBRAY PLOUGHDAY FAIR
25th Jan.1888, No.9978, p.8c
"This once famous fair seems likely soon to become a thing
of the past. Yesterday the show of horses and beasts were
exceedingly small, and prices ruled low. The colts were in the
best force, but these were not either in point of numbers or
quality equal to previous years."
