Since our post last week inviting you to our 70th Anniversary celebration in April next year we’ve been inundated with questions (okay, a couple of people asked) about the team in the photo. What year is it? Who’s in it? Why does everyone look so serious? Why is it not in colour?
What year was it? Well, before we give it all away here’s a couple of clues to help you…
The top selling song for that year was Something by the Beatles. In fact, the Beatles had 6 of the top 10 selling songs for that year.
Oliver! became the first, and so far the only, G-Rated film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The awards that year were notable for not having a host and the only time there had been a tie for Best Actress.
It was a big year. Other newsworthy events that year;
And the most famous of them all….
That’s right, the year is 1969. CBOB’s is a mere 22 years old and brimful of strapping young men and sensibly dressed coaches.
Be sure to join us at our 70th Anniversary Celebration to relive all these great memories.
