This is the back of the photo Simon, should answer your question!

ok - i checked my print - it has a London Weekend Television stamp on the back. They made the South Bank Show, in 1985, so the print was made then, It also has the word Sterling written on the back, which I always thought was odd. But looking at the original Name /Morrison archive print in Bleach's post, it has a tiny tear on Maureen's sleeve - and this is also appears on my print, so it's a copy made by LWT from Sterling's original, that he must have loaned to them in 1985 - that's why his name is on the back.

That says Cincinnati, bleach. Clevelanders dont appreciate getting confused for Cincinattians, whose city was named after some dumb Roman. Cleveland was named after the great Moses Cleaveland!!

No problem. The two cities actually were at war this week, and Cincinnati was destroyed in one of the battles. Go Cleveland Indians!
