Complete with enhanced 1970's Brentford Nylons static for that additional "get up & go".
... and knowing of the practice of certain model railway operators and their ilk to dress smartly for exhibitions (matching shirt & ties, embroidered polo shirts and the like) I found this old print of the

Going of the last visit, I thought that was where the local worshipers of Pugilism carried out their venerations.
...I still have those desert wellies, and trust you to get a lampshade in the pic (hardcore RM webbanistas will know just how long Mr Mane has lobbied for a half decent Revo).
...also, by the look of that wall paper and just how well your purple pulling pants stick to it, I reckon that pic was taken in Ma Mackinnen's boarding house in Aberdeen in 1978. (Ma Mackinnen btw claimed she could throw a dinner plate clean across the harbour in Aberdeen)
