Yes, I'm surprised,too- although I don't know George Formby (surely Sr?- I just have googled)- a nice idea and a refined treatment-'echt' Bill or Ogden and typically English as Astrid could say! The pic looks like an old illustration to a Charles Dickens' novel!
Bill Phillips: George Formby was uniquely English as an entertainer who would not have travelled well! He sang humorous songs and played the Ukulele. This is Jnr. Senior died in the 1920's The photograph I scanned was dated 1935. One of his best known songs is "When i'm cleaning windows and this is a link to it on Utube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfmAeijj5cM
Quite a fascinatingpicture! Well done Bill.
Bill Phillips: A bit of fun for a Saturday Richard
ha thats really good Bill, great pping mate and i feel like Aussie this would probs be better without the great man himself, have a great weekend Bill.
Bill Phillips: LOL! I did a lot of twiddling with this picture and in the end was sick of the sight of it so I stuck old George in the windowtongue
Ooooh Bill ...this is seriously yummy ... one of your best for a while . richard.

Hmmm I looked again at the image and saw the image in the window ... It's funny but I'm unimpressed with that addition.
God I'm so boring aint I ... ha! richard

I just like the picture with or without George...he was a great entertainer.Nice twiddling Bill.
Bill Phillips: Actually I looked on various sights and that picture of old George is worth more than anything I have ever takengrin
WE are in need of a fun shot on this miserable Saturday Bill and this is it. Great idea well executed.
Bill Phillips: More rain forecast tomorrow...we lost to the Netherlands in the cricket.....I could do with a laughgrin
Nice one since the Isle of Mann TT has started today.
