Fantastic to see a picture of probably the best teacher I ever had - and to see Professor Jones as well! I vividly remember my turn to take him home over the weekend - I also remember Mr Celery used to wear an apron with various vegetables and herbs on it (including celery - I presume that's why he wore it) and his innate skill at propelling those blackboards on wheels and throwing board dusters with unerring accuracy at those not paying attention in class.

Mr Celery. What a teacher, introduced me to classical music Peer Gynt suite, and was as I remember handy in throwing the board duster at you if you weren't concentrating enough, Gary Rimmer will remember that.

That's my sister in the top left, Wendy Brennan (now resides in the USA), bottom right is Sharron Pringle, I think the one behind the sign is Karen Mills (now resides in Canada). I think I recall Steven Brennan who posted this (he taught me how to turn my eyelids inside out!)
