In August 1959 Anthony Sargeant spent two weeks in the Cairngorm Mountains in the Scottish Highlands with a party from his school ( Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School ). At that time there was no unsightly development on the North side of the Cairngorms and the campsite was 10 miles from the nearest road in any direction. The photograph was take on the descent from Ben Macdhui the highest of the Cairngorm range which had been climbed in thick mist and driving rain. But here the mist lifted and the rain stopped as the party came out into the Lairig Ghru, the pass that bisects the Cairngorms. Here looking south. In those days there was hardly anybody in the mountains and we hardly saw another soul for two weeks.

Bellingham is in the Borough of Lewisham, South London.One of Tony Sargeant’s colleagues Norman with the dark glasses is seen in this picture watching the pool. The pool closed and was demolished many years ago as have been so many open air pools and lidos in the UK because they are so expensive to maintain.
