Three Kids


I guess I was about four years old when this photograph was taken (yes, that's me, the cute one in the middle). If I was four, we were still living in Bradford - we didn't move to Halifax until the following year - and therefore the photograph was probably taken at our house in Southmere Drive, Great Horton. The person on my left (right, in the photograph) is my brother, Roger, who would have been nine or ten at the time. I'm not sure about the lad on my right (left, in the photograph), but I have a feeling that I will be getting a message from Dominica before two long with the answer. Whilst I await a positive identification, here is the same photograph in colour.

    The photo was most certainly taken at 6 Southmere Drive and the third person may be Colin Fox. He lived on Great Horton Road. Somewhere in your archives you have a photo titled "The Speed Kings" showing me and Colin on our scooters. You can feed it into your photo recognition device to see if there's a match. Goodness, we were a scruffy bunch in those days.
    I have sent you an email wishing you a Happy Birthday.
