Turning back the years

I have been busy scanning old photos, primarily for a talk next month that will take me back decades to my Myddelton House years. It is with some trepidation that I will return to give a talk because so much will have changed since I was there. I had an annual budget of not much more than £1000 while recently a Heritage Lottery Grant has allowed a lot of progress. But boy do I hope the place has aged better than me!


It is hard to believe that I ever looked like this. Anyone for mullet?

    Nothing like reliving those old hairdos. I’ve got some photos of me with home perms that I hope never see the light of day.
