Pic pick


Marvellous Mirror memory here from our mate ALEX COLLINSON, who said: “Spotted in the Pumping Station antiques centre, Cardiff, among the Elvis memorabilia, this Daily Mirror page dated September 4, 1973. (Pics by retired Mirror news sub Alex Collinson.)”

And the reporter was our very own chairman DEBORAH THOMAS.

To put it all into context, here’s the singles chart from that day in 1973. Make you feel old?

1 Young Love, Donny Osmond
2 Dancing On A Saturday Night, Barry Blue
3 Angel Fingers, Wizzard
4 Yesterday Once More, The Carpenters
5 Spanish Eyes {1973}, Al Martino
6 Rock On, David Essex
7 You Can Do Magic, Limmie And The Family Cookin’
8 Like Sister And Brother, The Drifters
9 Angie, The Rolling Stones
10 Pick Up The Pieces, Hudson-Ford
