The photo was taken as stated at our school reunion, and I had not seen my friend for the
last 38yrs, and whilst catching up on old times came news of his mothers sad passing! However, the photo was taken at the
Plough Inn Witchurch, Cardiff, South Wales, in the United Kingdom, 14th December 2001.
The object in question was nowhere near or could have been when I took this photo as the people in the photo would verify! The object appears to be cloth of some description but be assured that there was no such garment or cloth in the vicinity!
Coincidence it may be, but my male friend in the photo was talking about his mothers passing at the time just prior to the photo being taken!
