Let’s hear it for the girls

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Paramedic Paparazzo -

To cap­ture hu­mour on the street si sal­ways an aim of my pho­tog­ra­phy and these two ladies made me smile when I took the pic­tures over 30 years ago and still do to­day. I hope they raise a smile with read­ers, too.

As al­ways, please get in touch vi­awww. chrisporsz.com if you recog­nise any­one.

That’s what reader Mark Cha rn le yd id about the pic­tures of Evening Tele­graph street ven­dors. He said: “I am let­ting you know that the ET ven­dor wear­ing the glasses is Mick Patch­cott. I was a reg­u­lar of his and we be­came good friends. We would al­ways have a good chat when­ever I was on my hour lunch. I lost touch with Mick af­ter he left Peter­bor­ough some years ago. I for­get the name of the bloke who’stalk­ing to him. I started work­ing­for Ar­gos back in 1997 un­til 2005 and Mick was al­ways on Cathe­dral Square daily un­til 1999 when he left .”

Sue Slade also emailed me, say­ing: “When I read the Tele­graph piece on ET ven­dors, I was­given a warm­feel­ing in my heart. I was de­lighted to see a won­der­ful pic­ture of my Dad.

“My Dad was Al­fred John Wright, al­ways known as John. My Dad is pic­tured with the shirt and tie, which he al­ways wore, rain or shine. He al­ways en­joyed his time with the Evening Tele­graph as a ven­dor.

“He passed away in 1996. I re­mem­ber my dad ev­ery day but this has made me smile and re­flect.”
