Earlier that year Gerry Smith had caught a huge skate in his net - approx 8 feet nose to tail - which he brought into town on his trailer. My mother is dressed as a Mermaid, with my father as Gerry showing off his latest catch.

I'm sure that standing to double D's right is our street cleaning operative, Bobby Mackay - hasn't changed much.

Don't think Donald Mackintosh is in the photo but the man with the glasses on could be Kenneth Howse.

The little girl beside Ken Scott-Lodge is probably Hazel MacLean.

Kenny, there is no way that's [Wilbur] next to Bobby - he looks too old.
Added by Sue Florence on 30 June 2003
Sue's right Kenny, that's definitely not Wilbur.

Rats! ---What an unnatural Mother I am!!--It really doesn't look like you, darling, and I'm sure I never cut your hair in a straight fringe!!

The little girl is not Hazel, Mum, it's me.

That's definitely not me with the glasses!

Man with glasses isn't Donald Mackintosh - he didn't wear glasses until much older - definitely not!!

If I remember correctly, the skate was never used for anything or even eaten. It was dumped over the wall on Braehead, where it rotted and stank for weeks. What a waste - it should either have been eaten or released alive.

I'd say the man with the glasses is my uncle Morris (Blocky) Shepherd.
