Some years ago I got to the island a little late with my camera, missing the event. Eddie Kidd had been jumping over buses and cars with his motorbike.
By the time I arrived he was signing autographs and fans were queuing up to meet him. The venue was the Waterside Farm Swimming Pool which had the diving lady painted on a sidewall.
A friend’s son promised: “I know Eddie. I’ll bring him out for you,” and disappeared into the entertainer’s caravan, but nothing happened.
I’d missed the action anyway and did not pursue the matter any further. And I made no notes.
Were you there? Can you perhaps put a date to the pictures and the event?
