Tony Ewer's class 87 phots 1984 - 2004
Tony sadly died in September 2020. I inherited from him 2 car loads of photo albums and
thousands of slides amongst other bits. Scanning these images will take me months if not
years but recently i completed his 87 prints and slides. A selection below.
Tony eased up on bashing by the late 80s as it became duller with sectorisaton but he then
spent many hours photting local power at a huge variety of local locations,
until the early 2000s. Then he became a keen station scratcher doing an awful lot of shacks
right up to February 2020 when ill health saw him forced to stop his travels.......
