An urgent appeal that won't cost you a penny ;-)

Do any of you have any photos of yourselves around about the age of 20 (doesn't have to be exact, a couple of years either way acceptable) that you would be willing to scan into your computers and email to me, along with year said photograph was taken. My daughter needs some for her next uni assignment so it would be very appreciated if you could, thanks in advance :-)

How quickly do you need them, and does it matter if other people are also in the photo?

Its a case of trying to find something suitable ;-)

Hi Det

It's an assignment that she'll be starting in the next few days so really in the next week or two.

The assignment is basically to show how fashions for people around J's age (J is 18 but they put 20 down on the brief) have changed over the years. So long as you can see what they're wearing it doesn't really matter who else is in the photo. If you can find something that would be great :-)

Hayley, if you have then as above that would be great.

If either of you or anyone else does have something then can you pls either pm or let me know on here and I'll pm my email addy :-)

Gwynne, yours are lovely. I'm very envious at how good you looked :-)

Thanks, Julie, but I'm still not convinced that yellow tights was a good look.

I have 1, 3 females all in different styles and 1 male in fashionable suit of the times. That suit is now fashionable again!
