Welcome to the Association of Mirror Pensioners’ website. The site is now more user-friendly for the many visitors who use their mobiles and tablets to surf the web. Every so often we’ll feature a new photograph. Ideas welcome!
A blast from the past – from 2008 in fact. A happy band of, er, AMP brothers toasts a sucessful London AGM in Brookes Brothers wine bar near the meeting venue in Baldwin’s Gardens. (Anorak note: Former Arsenal and England captain Tony Adams can be seen on SKY news in the background – he was appointed manager of Portsmouth FC that day, October 28, 2008.) It was obviously good aprés ski, because the photo was taken at 4.30pm. Pictured, from the left: Gerald Mowbray, AMP secretary; committee member (CM) and former Sunday and Daily Mirror photographer Bill Rowntree; CM and former Daily Mirror features editor Brian Bass; ex-Sunday Mirror picture editor Russell Cox; CM Caro; CM and former Sunday Mirror news editor, and editor of The Sporting Life Monty Court [obviously, somebody’s just told Monty it’s his round]; and Carl Bruin, former Sunday Mirror photographer. We don’t think we’ve changed that much in the intervening 10 years!
