Conference of yesteryear

Originally uploaded by Radders.
This is a photo from a Liberal conference in 1969, in Blackpool (photographer unknown). The photo belongs to my fellow ward cllr, Alistair Dow, who can be seen to the left of Jo Grimond, against the back wall. On Jo Grimond's right is David Steel, and to David's right is Wallace Lawler (first Liberal MP in Birmingham).
I think glasses were compulsory for young liberals in the 60s.

Coo, that MP for Birmingham must have been fairly old- Chamberlain was elected Liberal MP for Birmingham in 1876 ;)
