Was that a black and white photo, or did a colour camera turn it out like that ? A stark picture; I like it.

Wouldnt it be nice if we could just see Mr Whelans helicopter in the background approaching the JJB headquarters.

An attractive photograph, and I believe the camera you used is 2mp. It reminds me of Ansel Adams maxim that 'the most important part of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.'

Thanks Alan and others for your remarks. This was a coloured photo but hardly any colour in the photo owing to the subject. So just put it into Black & White form. This is looking towards the high school towards Norley Hall.

Hi Derek.
Yes I remember the clay hole, but was filled in many years ago. After a young boy lost his life there. Very very sad.

Hi Guys, The clay hole was called the QUARRY. Was my sanity as a child. I lived at the top of the street. What year was the boy killed?
