I have loaded the video files onto Youtube and the links for the individual files are below.
Apologies, but you can only see one at a time, you will then need to use the <back> button on your browser to return here.  Further apologies for all the videos of the steam-pump at Sovereign Hill but I thought it was beautiful and hypnotic. 
All the best,    (Snapper) Ron

A bit of family history ...

*Alan Wallace joined AUBC in c 1966 and, by doing so, introduced rowing to the Wallace clan. 
The FWM pictures above feature various shots of him and his family - some older viewer of this site may remember Alan from his racing days

Alan sculling downstream on the Dee past Duthie Park  c1970
Picture taken by little-brother-Ron, who then developed the roll in the darkroom at Aberdeen Grammar School and developed the B&W print
