THROUGH THE ARCHIVES
- AUGUST 1985

Many in the industry appreciate how different things are today compared to years ago. Roger Lindley takes a look at what he was writing about in August 1985 as editor of Cii Construction Indsutry International. For some, it will bring back many memories

Before the days of the Internet, mobile phones, etc, industry was more dependent on printed magazines. In August 1985, magazines where reporting on Expomat 85 which was, for the first time at the new Paris Nord Exposition Center in Paris. That exhibition is now known as Intermat.
Magazines were mainly black and white, with limited colour. Here is a selection of images that I took at that exhibition. Some names remain today, others have become memories.
