My coloured friend Jonny

Jonny Coore as a smurf
One of the few photographs of Gareth with long hair, and Jonny as a smurf.

Following my post Not everything in black and white makes sense I discovered this photograph of my good friend and former flatmate Jonny Coore. The photograph was taken in 1996 by Mark T. Powell while we were living at 108a Camberwell Road, London SE5 to celebrate his gift of a large cooking pot, which you’ll see we’re modelling.

Now I think I can safely say that in that photograph Jonny is very definitely a ‘coloured’ gentleman!
