BLAST FROM THE PAST - c1975 DHMD1 at Clapham Museum - Frank Bagshaw

This photograph recenty surfaced at a reecent STTS slide show evening and prompted great amusement at how time has marched on and people have changed. It does look as though Barbers had a lockdown in this era too! DHMD1 was being prepared for its move to Crich. The posers are l-r, Geoff Peppiatt, Ian Ross, Brian King, Ian Souter, Alan Bertram, ? thought to be an engineer on the Underground and Bob Tebb. It is possible that the photographer was David Packer who also used to attend.
