1233 : Look Back In Halifax

MARKET WORKER, HALIFAX : ALAN BURNETT (Circa 1966)

I think his name was Jimmy Porter, but I can't be sure. I know Jimmy Porter was a character in Look Back In Anger, but he was also a lad who was at school with me who had a Saturday job in the market. There was nobody who could fill a bag of spuds with the speed of Jimmy Porter. That might be a quote from Osborne and it might not be.

Looks like his hands are doing the Last Tango in Halifax...

It is a great black and white. I wonder if the Beatles influence his hair style of it that was the normal style at the time.
