EDDY VANE’S PHOTOS
Here they are at last, kindly sent by Barry. They relate more to STC rather than Summervale but just as interesting.
For instance – look at this poster isn’t it brilliant?
This one is very rare as I’m pretty sure that is Ron Dixon on the left. Can you name any others? What is that poster on the wall saying LIE DOWN? I’d love to know.
Another intriguing photo – Mr. Laughton on the left but who is the young lady holding the tea set?
And what on earth are those masks?
Another group of men at work the only one i can name is Dick Richards 5th from the left. I knew him well through my friendship with Carol. Other faces are familiar but names escape me.
Here is a typed list of people in a photo but I don’t appear to have it !
This appears to be a goodbye card to Eddy from his staff.
Joan Westmacott’s & Beryl Kearney’s names I know.
A programme from 1945
Was this the concert I wonder? Is that Mrs Jolly on the right?
Another Christmas party photo with Barry Symons front right and next to Tony Satchell. I think the lady in the back row is Mrs. Foulkes.
This is Barry Vane’s “ bungalow” – it looks so drab and depressing now but they were home to us all.
Can anyone recognise this?
Someone has won something! That is Reg Durham, Peter Westmacott’s grandad in the centre.
Mr Smith on the right?
The Band. Very sophisticated. Note Mr. Jolly is not on the drums.
More Christmas fextivites with lots of familiar faces.
Present timw – we all got one didn’t we?
The man sitting down is Leslie Mitchell who was a broadcaster on television. I remember him coming to the Rec but not the occasion.
Here is a strange little cartoon of The Ilmaniacs.
Finally, a couple of personal photos of Eddy Vane, his wife and Barry.
Thank you Barry for sending them to me.
