I saw Vinney as I was driving home from work one night and was passing back on my way to a meeting about 10 minutes later so grabbed my camera and stopped and asked if I could take his picture............What I didn't expect was his story in the short time I took getting some snaps of him learnt that in 1986 he was in the final of New Faces as a double act, and had supported many of the greats including Morcambe and Wise, he told me he had got carried away with alcohol and had ended up living in a bin for a year
Although I have taken many pictures of re-enactors......this is the first time I have plucked up the courage to ask a total stranger in the street. This is the picture I saw as I drove past ......which I got him to recreate for me..........More close up character portraits to follow.
