It was after 2pm by the time she left.
While at the pub last night we managed to talk an obliging young man into taking some photos. I've added a couple of photos from 1973 for comparison.
First - group shot, taken on the occasion of my 14th birthday. Girl who stayed the night (Giulia)is second from the left; girl who lives close by (Lynne) is on the far right.
Second - Giulia stars...
Third - me. I don't recall when this one was taken (but I remember the two-tone cords!)
Even after all these years I still felt as comfortable with these two as I used to, as if the intervening years never happened.
PS I can't wait to play blind cricket....
