The picture that would never be taken today

Posted: September 17th, 2015

HERE’S a picture that wouldn’t be taken in these days of political correctness. But back in the late 60s we all – the girls included – took a much more relaxed view of life at the office.

This picture, of senior Mirror executives of the day with their secretaries, was taken as part of an album put together for legendary editor Lee Howard on his well-earned retirement – after having taken the paper’s circulation past the five million mark.

After considerable research and countless emails, here and abroad, the names of all concerned are finally recorded here.

From the left is Roly Watkins with Evelyn Cant. Next is Geoff Pinnington with Ivy Causley, then Tony Miles with Annie (now his wife) and Gill Ross. Next is Felicity Green with Shelia Amphlett, Tony Boram with Doris McKay, Ken Hord with Kathy Ellaway, and on the far right is Mike Molloy with Vera Hutchins (now Patrick).
