A CHRISTMAS CARD FROM GASWORKS ROAD . . .
I was looking at this 1930s photograph in the RCT Libraries archive showing a bunch of lads in the YMCA, Gasworks Road (opposite George Street) . . . It’s a family sort of photo, and everyone wants to be in it, because they all feel – well – like they all sort of belong, if you know what I mean? They’re all bunched around the snooker table, and you’ve got these guys at either end angling the light-shades on the group to give maximum light –
A quick look-see and then I’m off looking through the other photos – and then I remember the last kid on the right who’s pushing forward a bit to get in on the act.
