It was wonderful seeing your photos of Lusaka. My father was a pilot for The Flying Doctor service in the mid 1970s, based in Ndola and Lusaka. The city is just as I remembered it, and yes, you have a small part of CBC captured also ! Thank you for sharing.
Dear Steve, what a delight to see these photos which capture times and places long gone. I am the daughter of Dan and Pearl Crowley, and so enjoyed seeing their photos, childhood shots of me and my siblings and (I think?) my Aunt Adeline? Thanks for making these available and I will certainly explore others as well. Warmest regards from the Crowley family .
Propelling me back all those years. I can even smell it and taste it!
G'day Steve and Jill, Just had a look on facebook, and rewatched one of my races back in '73 on Mindola dam 45 years ago!! wow I turned 74 on Monday and yet if I close my eye's I can capture the extreme excitement of the wonderful times.
Stay well both of you.
Great photos. Thank you for sharing.
Nice pictures of Lusaka!
I stayed in Zambia 1972-74 working for SWECO at the Itechitechi camp site at Kafue river when the new dm was constructed. Our office was situadet at Long Acre.
Hi, am trying to contact an old friend , Chris Blignaut, ex Kitwe. See some photos about him racing boats on Mindolao Dam.
Any idea where he is ? Last fished with him in Shakawe , Botswana. He was staying in Maun.
Like the photos from motorbike racing.
I have just enjoyed the privilege of browsing through your many excellent motorcycle photographs. Thank you!
I just discovered your picts about Geoff Dodkin's shop !
I did have a Velocette (Clubman) early 70's and two consecutive years (73, 74) I travelled to UK to this very shop to buy parts. The second year I bought a fairing and Geoff was enabling me to install it inside his (very little) shop. It seems all is still the same as 40 years ago !!!!! Really fine.
Now I drive a BMW (R1150GS), but I remember often the time with the Velocette, the best bike I ever had. I remember Geoff as a really good boy (probably a -young- GrandFather as I am also now).
Thanks for these picts!
