Looking for a trend
Perhaps a study of past photos might reveal a trend. Photos are exact contemporary evidence. Better than memory. This is set of five pictures that must indicate something. The first four are of me at work, or at least in work surroundings.
#1 1974 - the junior section leader in Southampton, with very friendly all-female colleagues. I'm the one with the silly grin who isn't wearing a skirt.
#2 1990 - the investigation/training manager in Bromley, with one of my trainees. Dig those specs! So cool and trendy.
#3 2000 - the deputy district inspector in Sutton. Still able to smile.
#4 2005 - the senior investigator in Croydon. Not smiling now.
#5 2007 - retired, at home, and it looks as if something's on my mind.
Sorry, I haven't got any brain scans...
