Let’s hear it for the girls
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.”
