After John Duders (Dudler) Uni Upload and a comment in that thread by Keith (Dark Lord) I thought I'd kick off a 'our former selves' thread.

This was something around 1980 in the mess room at work.
Not Uni as I did the day release route to high education, until the OU years later.

Taken with my OM10 on Agfa slide film

Me, in 1984, taken by a friend on his Canon AE-1. I'm holding my first SLR - a Minolta X700. Still got it. Still works.

This was me in about 1946! A boy! No rude comments please. From a set of tiny studio prints by a firm called, Polyphoto or something similar.
Parents were given a sheet of twenty or so postage stamp sized images and could choose the enlargements they wanted. I have 2 or three big prints stored away somewhere.
