This is my little sister, Elizabeth, she was three years old and I had taken her for a walk to Tinker's Pond.  I dressed her up as a little princess, with flowers in her hair, round her neck and in her arms..

This day was the end of an era for Barnsley County Borough, it was the day of the closing of the Motor Tax Office, 9a Shambles Street, Barnsley.  Here I am with Doug Jessop, who I worked with, together with others.  On the left is my boss Cliff Jenkinson, who sadly died last March.  As you can see we were having a party, the doors had been locked for the last time.  All records had gradually been transferred to the DVLD, Swansea.  It was a sad day for me, because I loved my job.

Out for lunch at Brooklands, Barnsley,1983 - I am lost in thought.
