The photo above was carefully preserved by Naena and Evelyn along with the text referred to in the caption which reads as follows.

WORKING HIS WAY. Twenty-one year old Robin Linklater, who is a first year photographic student at Harrow Technical College, is working in the evenings at the Palace Theatre Watford, to help pay for his studies.

Before going to Harrow Technical College, Robin took a theatre designer's course at Wimbledon School of Art and gained his National Diploma at the age of 19. For the next six months his work took him to a different kind of theatre - hospital operating theatres - where he worked mostly at night on emergency cases.

He did this partly because he had always been interested in medicine, partly to get some experience of photography in operating theatres, and partly to pay for a new camera.

FOR DECOR. Robin then returned to the stage, getting a job with Bristol Old Vic. There he helped to make props, which varied from very small objects to a car. When the Bristol Old Vic closed for the summer, he did some wardrobe work for the Edinburgh Festival with a London costumier.

It was at that time that a friend suggested Harrow Technical College to him as one of the leading schools in the photographic field. He applied and was accepted as a student, and intends to take his A.I.B.P. and A.R.P.S.

He hopes one day to be able to use photography in stage decor.

What really happened is another story which was once partially revealed at www.robinlinklater.co.uk but no longer as the idle dog allowed his website to expire. Having spent most of his working life and part of his early retirement in Nottinghamshire, he and Paula seized the bull by the horns and moved to the city of York, highly recommended as the place of my birth.
