Quality is plenty good enough, and above all I appreciate the effort that is being put in to enable members access so many of our older Chevals.
thanks again
David

Good question, Johnny- I don't know. I joined in the early 1970's but I didn't bother keeping copies of Cheval back then. Whenever I have come across old copies I have picked them up but the oldest I have in Jan 1975. Does anyone else know when Cheval began?

The earliest edition of Cheval in the AOMCC archives is from September 1957. On the cover it says "Volume 2 No 11" but how you interpret that to give a date for the first issue is anyone's guess.

For those of you with nothing much to do during lockdown, scanned copies of Cheval back to the start of 2000 are now viewable in the Cheval repository in the members section of the website. Having scanned and uploaded these, it is now onward and backwards (is this an oxymoron?)to the 20th century.
The scans are mostly of two page format, so there is some marking in the region of the central crease of the magazine, but as I don't want to damage my copies of Cheval, that was accepted as it also reduces the download size of the file, which once downloaded into Acrobat reader (or a similar pdf reader) should still be word searchable via the view/find menu.
Although I have not been reading the copies before scanning (the task would never be completed otherwise!), it is interesting to see the number of adverts in the For Sale/Wanted section, in comparison to current Chevals, an idication of the move to online sales/auction sites and social media selling.
Also interesting to see the prices being asked, if you ever wandered if an Ariel was an investment?

2011 sounds about right for the forum.

The online material on the club site started just a few years before that (knowledgebase, document repository, Cheval repository, Arieldrome). I think 2006.

For those of you with time on your hands during lockdown, another decade of Cheval copies is now available in the members section of the AOMCC website. All of the 90s (120 copies) are there, in a similar layout to the previous copies, and although not perfect copies all the text and photographs are easily viewable and text searchable once downloaded. The quality of the photographs is variable, but this is more to do with the originals than the scanning process. Note that the January 1991 Cheval is a 40th anniversary edition, containg items from the (then) 40 years of the club, and is considerably larger than normal.
I will continue to scan Chevals going back in time, but as the format and layout of the magazine had changed over the years, the scans may differ from what can presently been seen.There are plans for some form of indexing of articles of interest, so that you can easily locate specific topics, but this is still in progress, as it currently refers to Cheval copies not yet scanned and uploaded.
