Another trip down Memory Lane

We are grateful to former Sunday People columnist and Man of the People ALAN SMITH for this blast from the past.

This was the Champagne celebration thrown on The People stone the night we got a page away on time.

That’s head printer George Moyes on left, his deputy Alan Cooper in the middle. I don’t know the lad, who is the only one working, and the printer on the right is Big Stan.

The other guy is the editor Bob Edwards, who took me on as deputy sports editor, put a sports column I wrote on the front page then gave me the Man of the People column to write. He took me to lunch once but never, as I recall, gave me a rise. Happy days.
