Robert Carey… Going through my old photos I’m constantly reminded of how good life for us local 16 – 18 year olds was back in the early 60s especially on a weekend. Most of us worked Saturday mornings and the afternoon was either football ( sometimes Aggies), a bit of clowning around in a mates back garden (photo), and in the evening a local church hall to see a local group( The Spirits come to mind) or of course a trip to the Witchdoctor in St Leonards or to Hastings Pier for that great music. It only seemed good times back then. It wasn’t all good of course but at a certain age it seemed to be. The photo was one of many I took – or set up as in this case . Involved a bit of a struggle to get back so you could be in the photo though.
