The author reflects on the Royal Show. He claims that the show has, over time, been slowly dying, to the point where one might only go if he is showing livestock, have an equine interest, or wish to buy some chain harrows for his smallholding. He adds that these are very hard times for the Royal Agricultural Society of England.
