These photos were all taken on the penultimate day of term just after the GCE O Level results came out. Quite a lot of the crowd left school the next day never to be seen again. A Level study must have been all work and no play because it seems I did not bring my camera back to school for a further two years. However it was with a roll of out of date Ektachrome colour slide film which a photographer friend of my fathers would occasionally pass on to me. With an eye firmly on its scarcity and the cost of development, I shot just three photos. Unlike Kodachome, Ektachrome has not survived the ravages of time well.

Owen sitting on the left who remained at school for another year. Owen was I think his first name rather than last. In the middle William Pink and in the light coloured blazer - Im not sure. Smith perhaps?
