Found this image in a paper in the 1960s archive at the sunderland echo.
I sort of love how un-PC it is…..
I think the caption on it was something like:
“these train workers don’t need to be told twice!”
So I am glad to say that I am having lots of fun at The Crack Magazine 🙂
Yesterday was a class day- got into the office at about 10, had a leisurely walk down with my boss Rob to the Tyneside cinema – this gorgeous 1930s cinema, recently been refurbished and restored to its full glory. The whole place is so pretty with these beautiful mosaic floors. Its a great place cos it plays art house and low budget as well as old films.
Anyway, we went to the press screening for this new film, SoulBoy, produced by Ipso Facto Films. Its all about the northern soul movement, and is pipped to do for soul music what Quadrophenia did for the mods. Verdict? AMAZING
Albeit the storyline was a bit predictable it did not stop me from loving it!!! Sometimes its nice to have things work out the way you want them too. There’s something inherently reassuring about a happy ending.
Plus of course the dance scenes were insane!
Definitely one to watch out for.
