Thanks for posting this on your blog. A couple of extra notes. The bloke in the bow tie is Peter Jackson, first ever Labour MP for Ipswich. The photo was brought into the Party Office by an Ipswich constituent whose father was a member of the team. He died when she was a child, so the photo is a much treasured possession of hers.
