Note Frederick Morley’s, which is now a hairdresser and the baby in the pushchair must be around 36 now!

Paul Barnard also contacted me regarding the March 31 pictures.

“I was indeed one of the faces and have no recollection of this at all. We were John Morris, myself and Andrew Pollard.”

John Morris also saw himself in the photo.

n As always, please get in touch if you recognise anyone in the pictures. You can reach me via my website at
