Brings back some memories. The only good reason to go to Yarmouth was for the shows! Really like how you have presented this Bill.

who is on this week...Franky Randal or Old Mother Riley...I remember seeing both of these stars at Newcastle Empire.
A gem of an image Bill. It just looks as if you took it when they were performing.

A rather beautifully composed image, one which clearly tells a story, one both of woe and wonderment. The processing lends its self to a timeless quality, which enhances the feelings of nostalgia.

I don't quite know how you achieved the effect, but I love it. Classic tones with just a hint of graininess (to my eyes, at any rate), so evocative of the period.

Regards.

Well seen, Bob - I have added some grain in PS; blowed if I can remember how, though!
