In the middle of the swinging sixties, a team of technicians at St Andrew’s University took some time out from work in the Bute medical buildings to pose for a snapshot in botanic gardens nearby.

John Mackie, far right, was well regarded for his skills as an electronmicroscopy technician, says Evelyn Young (middle), who kindly submitted the pic.

She was a junior technician at the time, as was George (left) whose surname frustratingly escapes her memory.
