Photos from the Nottingham Convention 1989

The five photographs shown have been extracted from the wide angle photograph shown below. Ron Yard kindly loaned it to me.

I apologise for the mediocre quality but it is due to the limitations of my scanning equipment and image manipulation programs.

Nevertheless, the images are recognisable, although it might be a bit of a shock seeing yourself as you were 20 years ago!
