School dance

By dudler
I've just discovered two envelopes of negatives. Since the negs aren't in paterson files, they are pre-1971... Nostalgiac Film Friday stuff coming up.

Most of them are black-and-white film that I developed myself: but there are a few colour films.

For people of a certain age, predating the migration of the prom from the Royal Albert Hall to every school in the UK, these may have some resonance...

Four more frames to come as versions. In all cases, given that there are now filters to add such things, I've left the dustmarks and scratches strictly alone!

V2 and V3 take me back half a century or so... Though we had to rely on the boys' grammars for this sort of thing, at my convent school it was strictly girls only.

Great memories John and that angled back Speaker Cabinet looks like the old WEM PA system that had no power whatsoever and was only good for speech, not for screaming a Rock song into. I would say therefore that the pic's were taken any time after 1967 and the Singers Mic' looks like it could be '69' - 70'
Great to see these John, look forward to more.

wow, the girl in the dress what a stunner. This is the point where you say she is now my wife LOL.
personally i feel if you had touched these up in any way it would probably loose it's nostalgia and it wouldnt have a feel to it. saying that though they got loads of feeling to them and if photo's could talk, i bet they'd have a few stories to tell.
