Great Dorset Steam Fair
By Brian Chesters

Hi there, all Auto-musicians! Robbie asked for information on this years Great Dorset Steam Fair: it is to be held 27th to 31st August this year. This is probably the biggest fair of this type in the UK, although I have never been I usually attend the fairs nearer to home. If you are coming to the UK and are 'up North' during your trip, perhaps we could 'do lunch'. Let me know in good time where you will be.

Whilst surfing the web sites of Japan, I found that there is a company making new upright disc musical boxes using 16 inch discs and operated electrically. They have two styles of case, Traditional and 'Modern'. They cost about 20,000 UK Pounds or 32,000 USD. The address is:

I made a friend at http://www.synnet.or.jp/shino/musicbox/index.html His web page is the music box room with links to Japanese museums and the like. Mostly in Japanese, but some bits in English.
