Mr Alistair Paxton (1972)

Edinburgh hort. staff in 1972 outside the library. Dick Shaw was the Curator and at the back left is a very young George Anderson now of Beechgrove Garden fame. I started work in 1968 as a Juvenile garden labourer under glass, I'm the one with a short lived beard standing near the back left.

I retired in 2008 but happy to say that I still do a bit of volunteering.
