OUR stories this week 39 years ago covered everything from vanishing street signs to the arrival of a car on which a company pinned its hopes.

In Aldbourne, we interviewed the 16-year-old carnival queen about her day job as a blacksmith, and in Swindon we spoke to an artist who carved a handsome plaque honouring Victorian nature author Richard Jefferies.

(In last week’s Rewind centre spread, a photograph of a retirement party was incorrectly captioned as showing Ron Fisher, when it in fact showed Reginald Victor Hill. Our apologies.)
