The real Guy

It was wonderful to meet the real Guy of Sven’s flamboyant portrait Guy in Hippy Gear recently. Immediately recognisable, we had a splendid afternoon reminiscing and he revealed he had actually travelled to Carnaby Street especially to purchase that wonderful jacket for the sitting! See our blog entry Sunshine Superman. Guy, of course, went on to have a wonderful career in the fishing world, a passion which Sven wrote about in his book Jonah's Dream...

Here is Guy pictured in 1968, every inch the 18th century poet Sven described, and today. Not changed a bit!
