“I was delighted to see the panoramic photograph of 1954. I remember it being displayed on a notice board, and I think the price was six shillings and sixpence to buy a copy.

Imagine a child today asking for almost two thirds of the amount of the weekly rent or mortgage to buy a photograph.” Joan Tetley ’52-’57
