Rock Park – Park Hotel

One of my own pictures here – I’m the kid on the left, I’m guessing I was about 3.5 years old? I was born in 1974, so it was around-about 1977. We lived at Rock Avenue at the time, spent a lot of time down Rock Park.

Christening at Newport Church

Another one of my own pictures, taken at my christening at St John the Baptist Church Newport, 1974. I’m the one in white. The other person is my dad pretending to be Samuel L. Jackson.
