Fab Photo Friday circa 1976


Seeing as we've had requests for Fab Photo Friday and seeing as it's still Friday in my part of the world, let me offer you this until Sunny Jim gets his photos in gear for you.

This photo is a screen grab from a 1976 episode of Coronation Street. We see here Alf Roberts, Fred Gee and the third man is Terry Bradshaw, the brother of shop owner Renee Bradshaw (before she married Alf). Terry worked with Len and Ray in the builder's yard for a bit. At this point in the show, these three had ended up with a racing greyhound but it kept running off.

The dog was taken in by Albert Tatlock and these three stooges popped their heads round the door when they found out where the dog was. Albert was appalled that they were not feeding it much. Their excuse was that you needed the dog to be hungry when it raced. Poor pup!

Oh yes, these are fun, Tvor! I wasn't watching in the 70s, so it would be a good history lesson for me. Oh, I wish some Canadian TV network would pick up Classic Corrie again! It's what got me interested in the show to begin with when it was aired on W. It's one thing to see a few episodes now and then on video, DVD or youtube, but to watch them in sequence is a delight.

Fred Gee was one of my all time favourite Coronation St characters.

The actor who played Terry Bradshaw (pictured on the right) also wrote a number of episodes of the serial in the mid 1980s
