Thompson Club Newsletter Files - TATA Legend Volumes 1 to 24

Recommended Posts

This post will serve as the place to download pdf files of TATA and TCA newsletters. I have completed links to the first 24 TATA Legend newsletters, and plan to add a list of features within each newsletter as I can. This project will probably take a while to complete. I've decided to post the newsletters in blocks of 24 or so, in case a thread corruption issue should occur...Then I will have less content loss, and be able to recover it more quickly.

Just received Volume 71 in the mail, thankyou Tracie and all the contributors. 

Really enjoyed reading the report written by George O. Fisher dated Jan 1921. A well travelled man demonstrating the Model of 1919, and I was sorry to read about his untimely demise.
