I'm not sure who the first man is but Dennis Brown and I are following. We appear to be walking up Wallgate from the station towards Library St.

A lovely photo of a nicer age; can you see some of the lads you see around today taking part in a Walking Day looking so smart and happy?

Those were the days when the pubs opened at 9 o clock in the morning and the chairs all along the roads and people throwing money into the road.

Hi Terry, I remember you from the '70's, working in the NHS!

Hi Nev, I remember you, I hope you're keeping we'll.

Broadly? is that Bill Broad who played rugby at the Tech? If so good to hear from you

It is Terry. Resident in Canada these days. Enjoyed my Rugby at the Tech. Sadly a few players no longer with us.

To Broady
Bill we had a Tech re-union earlier this year, I'll try to post a group photo which might remind you of a few old team mates. I hope things are good over there.

I look forward to that. I don't suppose, in your many photographs, that you have any of the Tech. from the time that I was playing. Sorry to say I haven't a single photograph from those days. I could put an used e-mail address on here that you could contact me directly at. Cheers.

I'll lookagain but I'm not too hopeful, Mick Towey asked me on your behalf earlier this year.

Oops. Didn't know that Thanks anyway. I will try to let people know when I am next across so we may be able to have a "Drinks Evening"
