TOM DODD, R.I.P.

The death took plane last week of Tom, Dodd, Lower Road, a long time res­i­dent of Shankill and who pos­sessed a phe­nom­e­nal knowl­edge of the his­tory of Shankill.

Tom was one of the found­ing mem­bers of the Shankill Cam­era Club and pro­duced sev­eral very re­ceived au­dio-vis­ual pre­sen­ta­tions in­clud­ing 'The His­tory of Recorded Sound ' and ' The Eucharis­tic Congress'.

In re­cent years his panel ex­hi­bi­tion re­call­ing the 1932 Eucharis­tic Congress was dis­played in numer­ous lo­ca­tions. He was also ex­tremely an ex­pert on clas­si­cal or­na­men­tal plas­ter­work and skilled in the art of cal­lig­ra­phy pro­duc­ing cer­tifi­cates for many or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing the ti­tle art work for one Bray Cam­era Club 8mm film ' Mak­ing Ends Meet '.

He will be sadly missed by all those who knew him.
