Great images from the family archives Carl...thanks for sharing them with us at what must be a difficult time for the Peplows. As I've said previously, Mr Peplow Snr's quiff is truly a work of art!!  ;)

Many thanks Ian ,   there is a quite a few more yet !!  some are quite amusing !!! ;D

Lets see what the others think of these few first  ;)

The quiff is nearly a heirloom !!!  im doing my best to keep it "up" !!!
