At Renewal Day I not only learned the answer to this odd question but also now know that they should be housed in the Display Cabinet rather than being threatened with demolition!
1933 was caught in the midst of the Great Depression (1929-1935), a time of 32% unemployment and significant social pressures resulting from this. Reading the Fairfield Club Minutes of the day, it is clear that there were significant financial pressures on the Club with falling membership, and many of those members being non-financial. The Club was at significant risk of folding.
Our thanks go to all of you who contributed to our expanding oral history collection on Renewal Day.
