Young gentlemen in tweed coats



The point about this not very good picture is that it shows grammar school boys at a social occasion outside school hours dressed identically to the masters on Sports Day. Furthermore the picture was taken as late as 1970 as if the 60's had never happened.

  1. A very special occasion indeed for me: my first visit to a pub, aged 16, and my first taste of beer. I am the shy youth on the far right next to the tongue-extending M.J. Macgregor. This was in York on the occasion of a Transport Circle visit to the old railway museum. My education continued at the Collingwood on our return to Newcastle ... Indeed I probably spent more time at the Collingwood than at the RGS from this point onwards.
