The Good Old Days

I've had this picture on the wall above my desk for years. Hence, it's faded and tatty. You can even see two of the 'Blu-Tack' marks. It's a picture of the late actor, Ian Carmichael publicising the film of Kingsley Amis's Lucky Jim. Whenever the film is on the BBC this picture gets reproduced in the Radio Times. To juxtapose with the pint of beer he is holding, the book Jim has open is entitled 'The Alcohol Problem'.
