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

O that's good Bill, the attention to detail is superb well timed well presented. I just love it.

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.

Regards Nathan
Old Mother Riley,? just how old are you Bill?

The hook appears from stage left...

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.

Very suitable to the image.

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