Early Days with Tom Idle

02-1b Album OneTwo more pictures follow here taken at the same Easter weekend, of Swallow Falls and one of Tom slouching against the handrail on the path to Miners Bridge.  Charlie did write in his photo album years later the following:

“We met at Betws-Y-Coed on Easter Saturday night, March 31, 1923 and concluded our tour together, and a casual aquaintanceship  quickly ripened into firm friendship.  The comradeship was perfect and all sufficient.  Others, equally welcome, sometimes joined us, at times we travelled alone, but alone or in company our regard has never, or never will, diminish”.

Rather phrophetic words for such a young man, but that was their relationship at the time.  This website is struggling for material and many photographs are untitled, so if I insert no comments, it will be because there are none !!
