A time long ago – The Cairngorm Mountains in 1959

Mark Baxter - the haircut

During our climbing trip to the Cairngorms in 1959 Mark Baxter who had long curly hair decided it needed cutting and so various members of the party duly obliged. Recorded in this photograph taken by Tony Sargeant. Here Mr Arthur Grant wields the scissors watched by Martin Symms (extreme right) and Stephen Lee (2nd from right). Hidden from view on the left is Bob Tweddle, and centre Colin (Bert) Baker.

School Ski-ing Trip to Engleberg 1959

Askes skigroup

When Anthony Sargeant was at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School he went on a skiing trip organised Mr Arthur Grant and Mr Jock Gordon. This photograph shows part of the group that went. It is a low resolution picture from the internet put up by the brother of Neil Ferguson who went on the trip and unfortunately broke his leg on the last day of the trip. I remember that he was carried down from the slopes on the shoulders of the Swiss Ski instructor (skiing). I understand from the internet upload that Neil is on the extreme right. Of the others Steve Lee is on the extreme left and the Swiss ski instructor is next to him. In the centre is Mr Grant, and second from right is John Dobinson. Obviously the broken leg was severe enough that Neil Ferguson stayed in a Swiss hospital, possibly in traction, for some weeks.
