If anyone would like to know just how much this old reprobate meant to me should search out the the lyrics of 'Desperadoes Waiting For A Train' by the Highwaymen... it says it all really, he is the reason I enjoy a pint of ale!

Me dad's brother, George Miller (the tall bloke!). I have no idea of the date, but I do *think* I know where it is was taken. I think the building in the background used to be the TSB bank, the King Billy would be over to the left... the Platt Bridge Inn in front and across the road?

But trust me... knowing my Uncle George there will a pub close by! :D

Sorry Christine, my Uncle George remained a bachelor all his life. He is the brother of Esther, who married Joe Kehoe, your Aunt Florie's brother.
