Thanks for this comparison. I didn't know where Thomas street was.

Anyone know the name of the man first right?

No, sorry Jean. My dad can't remember the names of the men on the front row. Have you got an idea ? If so, let me know and it may jog his memory ! :)

It looks to me like my dad Percy Nixon.

I shall ask my dad tomorrow and see if he recognises the name !
It would be strange if it was your father ! :)
