Statement from David McPhie re “Sounds in the Shadow of the Crooked Spire” and “Dirty Stop Outs Guide to 1960s Chesterfield”

It has been brought to my notice that the inclusion of the photograph of St. Helena schoolgirls in front of the ‘Some Kinda Mushroom’ record shop in both “Sounds in the Shadow of the Crooked Spire” and ‘Dirty Stop Outs Guide to 1960s Chesterfield’ has caused distress to the women concerned. As it was me that the photograph was sent to, I therefore apologise for any distress or anxiety that this has caused, but as I have lost a series of emails from around two years ago during the period that the photograph was forwarded to me, then I cannot trace or verify the sender.
I can only repeat my regret for any distress caused as a result of the inclusion therein.
