IN 1961 Graham Pittaway was the youngest member of the Osborne Park Agricultural Society.

More than half a century later, Mr Pittaway leads the organisation which is this year celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Osborne Park Show.

In order to remember his origins at the Society, Mr Pittaway has framed and captioned the photo of the 1962 Society members, including himself and his father-in-law.

The group is pictured standing in front of the society hall, which was demolished a week later.

It is memorabilia such as this Mr Pittaway wants to collect, to improve the Society’s historical collection and to put it on display at the upcoming show.

This year’s event on December 5 and 6 will include a performance from Johnny Ruffo, formerly of Balcatta, as well as fireworks each night. Horses, log chopping, animal exhibitions and produce will also feature.
