Friend, Alan On Bike

This photo is one of many taken in the mid-sixties on my mates parents’ camera that we used every time we went away camping, Bank Holidgay weekends, on our scooters. I’ve got some but the rest must be lost or in boxes in attics. This one is of Alan Dodd on an empty beach close to Margate. He was a policeman in Glasgow last I heard from him.

(Yea. I remember now. It was Teds’ camera. We’d load it with black and white and get it processed at his local chemists on Brixton Road. At one time Alan met this girl who seemed to know all of our exploits. Turns out she worked at the chemist.)
