It's funny how you can curse things, but then years later find that they add a strange charm to a photograph. I'm not sure which is the most rateable here, the Cravens or the classic pushchair? The occupant of the latter if favoured with longevity must be over 30 now ! This is Norwich set 59, E56114 + E51258 simmering at Ipswich before departure as the 10.48 to Lowestoft via the East Suffolk line. 9/9/81. Gerard Fletcher.
