Having a Ball!

Having a Ball!

About this memory

The picture shows the Edinburgh Southern Hospitals annual dinner dance guests at the Assembly Rooms in 1963.
Reg Long (centre, wearing the black cummerbund) recalls:
‘These were wonderful evenings with live music from these great bands playing ballroom, jazz, and a fair helping of scottish country dancing, and we would all have gone home in the early hours after the morning bowl of soup.’
