Oh, the power of Remember When!
Some of you might recall the picture of the Teddy Boys (below) posing outside the Maytree café, Fareham, in the late 1950s.
I first ran it as a pure piece of nostalgia back in 2009 after one of them, John Spencer, of Redlands Lane, Fareham, sent it to me.
The cutting made its way to Australia to the home of another of the lads, Arthur Joy.
He visited John in 2012 and decided to come back again to his old stamping ground this summer. That in turn inspired John to organise a reunion.
And that is what we see in the picture above – a gathering of the old clan at the Jolly Miller pub at Miller Drive, Fareham, where landlords John and Debbie gave them a warm welcome.
John said that, apart from Australia, two made long-distance trips for the get-together – from Wales and Northamptonshire. The rest still live locally and were alerted to the event by Remember When.
The evening’s music was provided by the aptly-named band Second Time Around.
