What grand old memories the picture of Rosemount brings back to me, I have not been inside that beautiful old chapel sine about 1949 when I attended a wedding. I remember it being a cold day and the tie and stiff collar were killing me. I sat near old Ed, Edgar Preston and Sam Wood. After we all went to the reception at the White Hart on Old Road. We carried Jack Greenhalgh home at about 9.30., he was legless. Oh such grand old memories.
