Hi
It must have come from when you saved it originally then. If you right click on it and click "Save as" then you get it saving as "Image7_Ryland_St_Ladywood_1968"

Just noticed the photo in post No 4 of the youngsters standing next to the two tone Ford Anglia 100E with the Morris 1000 van also in the picture, I bought this Anglia from a dodgy car dealer in bishopgate ? street (opposite ryland st other side of broad st) in 1963, lasted 6 months before blowing a piston.

Hi Nickcc101
How strange is that, ( i mean the car being in the photo) not you buying it from a dodgy dealer.
I often look at the cars in the photo's. You know your getting on when you say i had one of them, i had one like that.
Sorry if i brought back bad memories.

Regards Stars

Thanks Stars, no problem with bad memories as I kept the car for about 3 years after fitting a new piston. The car had been re sprayed when I bought it with the upper half being a fawny colour and the lower half a sort of orangy red, never seen this colour before or since thank goodness.
