Testing Time

The interesting but frustrating thing about time travel is that the time traveller may glimpse the past but can only record the sensation using the technology of the age travelled to.

Thus, when earlier this year Third Man piloted the Squire in the Type III back to watch the cricket match featured above, they could only capture an admittedly obscure view of this West Indian team taking the field against the Australians.

Even so, it is a better view than “Buzz” Aldrin ever managed through the Eagle’s porthole of the Sea of Tranquillityand the visually imaginative should be able to identify 3 Ws, a Ramadhin and a Martindale.

When, where, why?

A clue … it was Festival Cricket.
