...so, does everyone get ready for a picture ( no matter what the occasion is), get all dressed up, lined up, big smile :D and ....hold it, hold it.... "where's christie - we can't have a photo without christie in it " :rotfl:

Just goes to show that your Da was a much loved person in our wee town and very important to the sense of community in Warrenpoint.

Well said Whitestar, Christie was a much respected man in our town, and is still sadly missed. I can still picture him arriving on stage during the panto with a different coloured sash over each shoulder and wearing that mischievious grin of his, that always got a laugh. Great memories. :)) :rotfl:

I would hazard a guess and say this was taken about 1965? Can any one confirm this?
