Patricia Routledge as Hyacinth Bucket, and Alan Bennet, or maybe not.




I think this was outside the Aunt Sally stall. Not much of a photo, unless youíre interested in 1960s fashion.

Members of Clarkston Amateurs FC were the targets for the wet sponges.

The pipe band were wearing the insignia of the Highland Light Infantry, though the regiment had been amalgamated with the Royal Scots Fusiliers in 1959.

The Glasgow Garden Festival in 1988, shots taken in the course of several visits. There were clear blue skies in May, but it seemed to rain for most of the rest of the summer. The chestnut-haired 10 year old who appears in a number of them is my oldest nephew John.



John fancied a ride on the Coca-Cola Roller.

By halfway up the launch ramp, I think he was having second thoughts.



By the top, so was I.

You seemed to spend most of the ride upside down.

Having survived the outward ride, we were both a bit more relaxed for the return.




In this case itís the photo thatís upside down, to show more clearly some of the layout of the Festival.

The same carload at the foot of the launch ramp, on the way up and on the way down. Compare and contrast some of the facial expressions.
