Memories, Thick And Fast

This certainly isn’t my best photograph from the 1960s – there’s a bit of camera shake, the developing was more miss than hit, and it was a dark, wet, misty day to start out with. But what it lacks in photographic quality, it makes up in part with atmosphere. As I look at it now, the memories come thick and fast: policemen in long white coats; Marks and Spencers at the top of town; the Co-op arcade; upstairs cafes; Stylo and John Temple! It doesn’t matter of the photograph isn’t all that clear – neither are my memories.
