A discovery of a tweet by John Aldridge brought back memories of the Life photograph and set off different memories with this photograph:
What a remarkable artifact to share. What I find tantalising is that there is an impression of another letter in this image. Was this the Liverpool club’s reply?
I have been imagining how you might reply to such a humble letter from one of football’s iconic managers.
The letter is in a collection at the Shankly Hotel due to open in August 2015.
