Chapter 1 – Picture 01
Found this very old picture of me whilst going through the family’s picture achieves. It would seem that even from an early age I had an interest in things with wings, things which flew through the air in one way or another.
Chapter 8 – Pictures 01, 02, 03 and 04
Just a few of the many, many things I have used my creative talent to design and then build, or have had built for me over the years.
Pic 01 and 02 show the desk I designed and then built for my workroom at home. The organised (?) chaos you see on the desk is a permanent fixture. Its a good job I know where (?) everything is.
Pic 03 shows the Hi-Fi Storage Unit I also designed and then built for my home.
Pic 04 shows Cocoon, the multi configurable cargo pod I designed for delivering payloads into low, medium and high Earth orbit.
Chapter 9 – Picture 01
The Fidelity UA4 record player which could have quite easily cost me my life if things had gone more differently than they did.
In the time covered by this chapter in my life the Fidelity range of Hi-Fi systems was the ultimate in low-cost Hi-Fi excellence and design in my opinion.
Chapter 10 – Pictures 01, 02, 03 and 04
Pic 01 shows the Yorkshire Coal Field as it was when I worked for the National Coal Board which later became British Coal.
Pic 02 shows just a few of the books I acquired during my time working at Wath Main Colliery in South Yorkshire.
Pics 03 and 04 show the typical working conditions to be encountered whilst working underground in my day. For reference these last two pictures were not taken by me, they are ones which I found whilst searching the internet for reference material to cover this period in my life so credit is given here to the people who actually took the pictures.
