Richard Hind Football Team c1960/61

I’m the tall one in the centre of the back row, with the captain John O’Neil seated in front of me and seated on the extreme right, as we look at the picture, Barrie Smith, next to the member of staff who is Ian (chopper) Benzies. Robert McKenzie is standing two places to my right.

The remaining members of the team are so very familiar, but their names, as is so often the case, elude me.

Teesside Airport Control Tower c1960s

This photograph of the control tower at Tees-Side airport was taken just a few years after it was taken under the control of the local councils. I thought it very apt as the wheel has turned full circle and it is once again under local council control.

The original spelling was with a hyphen, this was of course later changed to a single word. The building its self has a definite 1930s look about it, the curved corners and windows have an Art Deco feel about them.
