More Marina


My friend Iain Reid saw the Blog post and popped in from down the road with some images and some memories from the Marina. Here, from November 1969, is Iain’s membership card

And here is Iain (left) with his pal Steve Prior. As I suggested, Gary Buck was the DJ and he’s hidden behind them as his girlfriend Christine Budd gives him a great big kiss. As far as Iain recalls, it was Gary’s dad (the owner) who took the photos.

There are more where these came from.

  1. Hi Dave,
    I can’t wait to cut Iain’s hair next time!! I’ll give him a bit of stick !!!

  2. Ps, that goes for Steve as well !!

  3. Crikey, Iain has now gone for the ash blonde look- maybe pioneered by yourself and me, Dave !- and Steve has put on a good few pounds. Great photo.
