Rather interesting Tunbridge Wells facts
Did you know that the first motor show in Britain (and possibly the world) was held on October 15 1895 in that rather racy spot Tunbridge Wells? The event, organised by the local mayor, took place on the Agricultural Showground there. It boasted a grand total of five vehicles, one of them a Peugeot belonging to Mayor David Salomons, but still attracted the gentlemen of the press and several hundred visitors.
