Not at all, Bri.  I would simply scan them in position as part of the booklet and do everything else in post processing. The originals wouldn't be harmed in any way.

I ran into Tom (used to own The Elm Tree Hotel) last night.  He know Waldron (slightly) bumps into him sometimes drinking in Snooze.  He said he had seen him recently and asked when building work would start.  Waldron replied that he did not know as he would be selling it on to a builder!!!

That is a great photo, Hugo.

I would never have known that was Richie.

Together with Allan the Milk, the three of us went and sat together at Old Trafford for the period that Mr Ferguson was in charge.

However, I can easily recognise a few of your team mates.

Ian, to do what you want to do will it involve splitting up the pages of the magazines because I am not too keen on that, if it does?

They truly are pristine.

Thanks Bri,  that's the same Richie that was in our team. He is in the centre of the back row in the photo.  I'm at the end of the players on the right at the back row.
The last time I saw Richie was in Tesco's many years ago

I'm afraid that my JBGS magazines are the worse for wear but I only look at them on the odd occassion

Bri: I've suggested to Hugo that he lends me his copy so I can scan it and post the entire mag in the gallery.  If you'd be agreeable I can send you details of how to pass the mags to me so I can do it.

Hugo, it is interesting you still have the JBGS mags for 1959 and 1960.

By coincidence, I still have the mags for 1961-1966 in pristine condition.

Btw, Richie Jones from Conway Road is still local and lives over in Deganwy.

Watched the bit of Wales Today about the rail franchise earlier.  As might be expected a good deal of chatter about the Valleys and the South Wales metro.  As a nod to us Gogs we had a couple of legal people who work in Wrexham interviewed. the main point of which was they would like to see disused stations reopen.  A fair point given the considerable number of housing developments over the past 40 or 50 years since closures. Then, for some unexplained reason Nick Servini popped up at Llandudno station but didn't really say much - not even about the closure of the booking hall due to a crack in the glass frontage.

One odd thing about the whole franchise issue is the chatterers' constant repetition of the mantra that the Welsh Government/Transport for Wales now run the "Welsh" railway. They seem to overlook the fact that other franchisees such as Virgin, GWR and Cross Country also operate services into and out of Wales.  The Wales & Borders franchise itself covers large swathes of the English border counties and fairly important places such as Shrewsbury, Hereford, and Chester are included together with the services on two routes into Manchester and the Chester-Crewe shuttle. Interesting times.

Hi George,  I took some photos of the articles in the magazines and attach them so that you can see them.    The first two photos are from the 1959 John Bright magazine and the 3rd and 4th are from the 1960 magazine.  Hope that some good memories come back to you.

In the 1959 magazine there is a mention of Richard Jones as being a rock and roll fan, do you remember if he lived in the council houses on Conwy Road Llandudno.  The reason I'm asking is because a Richard Jones played in the same football team as me and he was ahead of me in the school
