The photo is from an article which was in the Picture Post about Manchester University Men’s Union and the Rhythm Club was a feature. It shows Richard Ellis on trumpet, myself on clarinet and Jack Palmer on banjo. Richard later progressed to become Professor of Anaesthetics at Leeds University and Jack became a pharmacist and owned a pharmacy in Ramsbottom. I think it was taken in 1954 or 1955.


Derek Atkins and Alan Brown playing at a session at Swinton Park Golf Club sometime in the mid 1960s.  Also in the band but not in the photo was Fred Fidler on trombone.  The photo was taken by a fellow golf club member Eric Shaw who incidentally was a professional photographer for Reuters News Agency.

A couple of photographs sent in by Bob Lamb the top one now identified as Mike Dexter & Tony Dunleavy.  No mistaking the somewhat closer, close-up of Dave Renton below. Bob says, "Apart from trombone Dave had an excellent veggie restaurant in Liverpool called Domino which doubled as a small art gallery.  He was a smart cook !
