Rev Long - I was one of the police officers detailed to work on this event.
I seem to remember one of the organisers was someone called Ian Gall. A nice chap.

Yes, he was a nice chap - I knew him quite well, before his death, when I was Chairman of the Sankey Canal Restoration Society.

When you really look at this image, its all about curves in the foreground & straight lines in the background. You have to admit they built good looking stonework & buildings years ago.
