A fine portrait of this fine fellow, Chris.
Chris: Taken in Manchester town hall café Frank
Thad looks as distinguished as his surroundings in this portrait Chris....petersmile
Chris: Oh he is just that thing Peter

Cripes! What a Power Stare!

I think he is directing his undoubted Powers at willing the coffee cup to turn itself right way up, Chris!
Chris: And such is his authority that he made the crockery dance a jig around the table Ray, even though none of it wanted to
Very stately!
Chris: And behind him are the real heroes of that fine place immortalised for all time

What is the name of this society of famous men?
Chris: Individuals Philine, all the fathers of Manchester
He's trying so hard not to crack that smile, Chris. smile
Chris: You see more than I do Ginnie

The Northern Magnate
Chris: Stuck by his hobnail boots to the metallic floor covering Lisl..
This elderly gentleman clearly dos not know the finer points of using a cup and saucer
Chris: Oh - nor of taking pictures either..
It's no laughing matter Tiff.
Chris: It never was Chad

Almost an Edwardian ambience to this , Chris.

I never realised that chad was born in such times ... [grin]
Chris: He has reincarnated Richard
If he sits very still for a very long time he will turn white and be placed on a granite post too.
Chris: That is what he is hoping for

Same vacant stare as the three guys on the pedestals.

Now the guy at the bottom - I believe the expression about "the cat's whiskers" originated with him. Years later, Hugh Heffner got hold of this picture and modelled the headgear of his girls, accordingly.
Chris: I think this picture is wonderful Louis, I might get headgear like his

I'm pleased to see that such a grand setting of this has taken pity on the destitute and have allowed them in. Batman's beard looks bigger than I can recall from the TV series.
Chris: It's Batman's grandfather
He could easily be mistaken for one of the high and mighty on the pedestals behind him.
Chris: Very much so Brian
I suspect that the gents in the rear would frown at him not wearing a tie! smile
Chris: You bet they would Tom

Wow, his Lordship does not have anything to drink....
I think you play a 'cat and mouse' game here...
Chris: Mr Dufftown has yet to learn which way up a cup should be used Astrid..

Is someone chiselling his portrait to add to the ones behind him I wonder
Chris: Looks like it Anne..
