That's a blast from the past - we've still got a big pile of those in the attic if anyone wants one!

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

I hope all this history, of the 60s is being recorded for future generations in the Library, it would be a shame to loose all these stories, as none of our generation will be around in 30 or 40 years. All the photos & newspaper cuttings are very important. It would be good to access some photos of the time from Garth Dawson, he must have hundreds of different groups & venues, he was always up the Con or the Arcs, on a Saturday nights, after, all the weddings in the afternoon.
