  1. This photograph, taken by my father, was taken in Sir Stanley's garden. this has been edited because I have the original and there were two deckchairs leaning on the fence behind him and have been 'adjusted' to omit them from this published version. I also have some cine footage of my father having a kickabout with Sir Stanley when the photoshoot was over.

  2. Thank you for your comments. I have 14 other photographs that were taken from the same photoshoot which do not appear to have been used. My father was a professional photographer and I believe that he was commissioned by Frido to take the pictures.They have a handwritten date on the back of 1958.
