Wild Daffodil set us the challenge of sharing photos of windows each month- link here
Pickering hosts a war time/ 40s weekend in October, designed to boost visitor numbers to the North York Moors Railway before the end of the season. The town has a population normally of around 11,000, this goes up to 60,000 over this weekend. I am not a fan, but recognise that the businesses which depend on tourism and provide employment need this , and also the local shops do rather well, from antique and charity shops to the butcher who supplies meat to restaurants and cafes. And that means they stay in business for the rest of the year.
It also provides a super set of window displays. I have focused on ones that favour the vintage look rather than the war look.
