Sadly, the fashionistas have decided that the side parting is a good thing.  It isn’t, but I was always ahead of the pack, as this startlingly attractive photograph will attest.  Three pictures of me and my Dad, with a vicious side parting on display.  My Dad would have been jealous, what with having gone bald in his twenties, but that didn’t stop him taking me into the photo booth that used to be at the side of the Caledonian Hotel in Lothian Road to spend 5 bob on some high quality photography.
