Were you at any of the events or do you recognise any of the people in this week’s archive pictures?

Re: Benhall Show in 1973

The handsome young man parking his very smart racing car is my brother, Glyn Cabe, aged six. We learn to drive early in the countryside. In fact he still helps with the car parking at the Benhall Show most years and did this year on Saturday, August 10, which was a lovely day and enjoyed by all who attended.

Also may I add by coincidence on page 64 of the same newspaper was a lovely picture of my husband and son in full Ipswich Town colours enjoying the game against Millwall.

Mrs Sam Caley (nee Cable),

Re: Picture of Haverhill Hurricanes swimming squad in September 1994

I saw the photo of the swimming sqaud in your paper this morning and can advise that I am one of the people in the photo. I am the girl second one in on the left.

It has certainly bought back a few memories.

I am one of the swimmers in the Flashback photograph (EADT, September 9).

I am the one in the middle with hat and goggles on.

The two girls on the right are Polly Pennington (nee Ashford) with her older sister immediately behind, Laura Dolan (nee Ashford). Our family house is visible behind in this picture. Our parents still live there now!

Re: Hippy Fashion

I am one of the people in your recent photo, so I know exactly who they are.

From the left Marilla Johnson (now Ferguson), Julian Putkowski (who made the necklaces) and Eileen Curson (now Allen).

I am living in Bradfield St George. Eileen is living in North London and we have both, unfortunately, lost touch with Julian.

Marilla Ferguson,
