JAMES, Pontefract 1991.

James is the son of my mate Geoff who is featured in the previous photograph, North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Pickering 1991.

About a year after the Locals exhibition at the Pontefract Museum had finished, James’ school class planned a visit to the museum. James told his classmates and his teacher that his photograph was on display there. Of course it wasn’t there any more and all the kids made of fun of James and the teachers thought James was a bit of a fantasist.
