I do indeed remember your father, Jim Bartlett (and his brother Ted) Jim and I worked at Fort Dunlop and he persuaded me to join Lozells from Small Heath harriers. I was a discus thrower and became their first international athlete in 1958 when I was in the Physical Education Branch of the Royal Air Force. I had some lovely pals in the club. Incidentally, no one knows who the chap in the pork pie hat is, it seems he was standing on the steps and when the photographer was getting everyone together, he simply joined in ! Brilliant!! Oh, I'm at the back about four or five to the left as you look at the picture (tall, with dark hair then, sadly no longer having been cooked by military headgear and flying helmets) If you care to get back to me I'm on [email protected] My family have mostly gone now but I still have hordes of cousins about (there were 16 in Mom's family and 12 in Dad's) thank God television came long ! Anyway I hope all is well Stateside and wish you all the best. Cheers IanYes indeed: this photo brings back a precious memory of my Dad, who was a member of the Lozells Harriers. He is top right of the picture - the really tall lad; at the time pf the picture, he was 24 (and I was not born until nine years later...).
YesThat's great to hear, I'll have to contact Ted and get him on this site... I think that there was also a running track near to where Spaghetti junction is. Was it Salford bridge?
That's awesome Centurion. I hope you had a good meeting! -SteveHi Wizzle,Met up with Teddy after 51 years i did a small tribute book for him with photos of Jimmy in also the history of Lozells Harriers from 1899 till its demise in 1991,Teddy said that he will send it on to you all the best Fred Brooks
