Was Tommy Dobson a celebrity of some sort in them days does anyone know? Hes seems to have been photographed an awful lot considering the era they were taken?

Recon he must have been RH, was thinking the same myself.

He was a very small man and spoke with a strange jerky whistle, in a broad local accent. Dressed old fashioned for the time too. Could run over the fells like a deer.

So i recon, with the boom in all things Lakeland and hunting back then, he was as facinating a character as he is now....
