It was great this week to hear from 'Prisoner' historian Roger Goodman of PrizBiz regarding his most recent contact with Sidney Allinson (left).
Sidney worked with George Markstein in the late 1940's at the Southport Guardian newspaper (and himself later became a successful writer of 6 books) and, as such, contributed an interesting foreword (and photographs) for the book 'George Markstein and The Prisoner'.
Sidney's recent communications with Roger included the fascinating photo below, which shows the Southport Guardian building as it was when the pair worked there.
'George Markstein and The Prisoner' is available from Amazon, Portmeirion, and The Unmutual HERE.
With thanks to Roger Goodman for this news item. Images (c) Sidney Allinson.
