Alan mentioned Google Maps today, so that set me thinking.....here is a photo from "Maps" of the house in Halifax I grew up as a kid.The house on the left.Top window (nearest the road)was my bedroom .I still,to this day ,have frequent vivid dreams about this road.Welcome to my world!
Its only a matter of time before Google find a way to photograph the inside of our houses!
In the meantime, here are a couple of photos I took of a corner of my bedroom.I guess 1972.I had just returned from a year in London (working in The Carter Lane Youth Hostel).I went back to Further Education college in Halifax to get my O & A Levels (in just one year!! I had left school at 16 with no qualifications...so I was playing catchup).Within 12 months i would be at Teacher Training College in Liverpool.
Essentially this was a shrine to the London Hippy Life I had left behind.Free Festivals:cannabis:LSD; & Opium and OZ marches
Ken sent me these photos this week.Some of them capture the era quite well.
