That's something we don't see these days - the pipe smoker! Can you imagine being enveloped in all that tobacco smoke! And a Beatles poster... Great capture Albert.

Good memories... The middle poster is for the Philharmonic Hall which has the most amazing, bright acoustics... For the school exchange trips I had my 'Russian kit', blue eyeshadow, pink lipstick and silk scarf, and when with our Russian friends I managed to get into concerts at Russian rates rather than the much higher prices that tourists are charged. Sorry, I'm drifting off topic.
This is so very unmistakably St P, the seriousness. I'd like to crop a bit off the bottom, to finish just a little way below the posters. I find the man's knees distracting.
I don't think I have ever typed that sentence before in my life...

Ah the Beatles, just a local band who sold a billion albums!

I only found out this year that Paul McCartney used to live in Wallasey (My home town, just after he was born, 92 Broadway (now 92 Broadway Avenue). His parents moved out as they couldn't afford the rent!

"Give my regards to Broadway", now you know where he got the title from!

Ah yes, the proportions of V2 work for me. And the lack of knees. Never my favourite part of the human anatomy...

It sits the mono conversion Albert. I would love to see the version with his feet on just to see if I have the same amount of influence that Moira has.

I knew somebody would want the feet but unfortunately they are not on the original. Camera Club judges will not like this one Danny.
