That is a good photo Ron, and everyone with a good shine on their shoes too, is Ffarrington Eckersley giving the mayor a poke with his swagger stick?

Some interesting facts of the Eckersley family in the comments by Andy Lomax on this thread, but ignore the usual screwy comments by the usual crowd.
