One of the men …


… in this photograph (and well known to you all) contacted me recently to ask about the Pompey Pop Archive in the Library (Guildhall Square)

gdnob - Copy

Well the answer is that it is there, but things have been rather slow at their end. However, I have been in this morning to help with the catalogue and I hope that very soon now it will be available to anyone who visits the Third Floor. I’ll keep you posted.

(PS: the photo, obtained yesterday from Pete Cross, is labelled “gdnob” – should we know why?)

  1. Nothing very sinister, I’m sorry to say.
    gd = Geoff Davis, nob = our Nobby,
    sorry it’s not more of a talking point! unless anyone else has got any variations?

  2. Looks like they had their own MC too!
