Do you remember photographer John Sweet?

John Sweet… Hi guys, my name is John Sweet and I used to have my photo studio in Silverhill in the sixties, next door the “Smackers” the bookmaker. I think it was called ARKLE after the famous horse. I also used to belong to the Silverhill Club and play three-card brag there on Sunday and own a Marcos car  Does anyone remember me?

Graham Bradley… Hi John , remember you and your car well, do you remember doing a photo shoot at rock in ore for the band I was in Whiskey Mac

Trevor Spears… Yes John i remember you as well, regards!

Paul Coleman… Yes John. I remember you very well. You also played brag with Pete Bryant in the Arcadian Club on Bexhill seafront. (Which is where I met you). You prob won’t remember me though. I had long hair in those days. I’m not so sure though. It could have been you that did my wedding photos at St georges, Cantalupe Rd when I married Pam. You may remember her. A few years older than me. Black hair & sometimes worked behind the bar if Pete went out.
Hope you are well.

John Sweet… Paul, yes remember you, and Pete’s Arcadian bar in Bexhill. Didn’t you also go the Brian Stalkeys club opposite.

Martin Richter… yes – the Marcos was often seen in Salisbury Road
