I have to chip in here. Just how many of my personal heroes can you get into a single post? (OK, I mean F Scott Fitzgerald in the case of the top pic, and Anthony Burgess in the case of the two pics of Alex, and I guess 'heroes' isn't quite it either... Oh shut up, M-o-M!)And you ought to be caned for 'Citizen Cane'!
This is surely because a) we didn't get our pictures taken all that much, and b) when we did (by the media) it wasn't when we were dressed to go out of an evening.I know that, exceptionally, I was photographed quite a lot, but I was always short of money and had to save up for a crombie, which I did in fact buy fairly late on. I had my sheepskin before that, of course.
