Have your say

This workman, who doesn’t appear to be wearing a helmet or safety harness, is perched on a crane overlooking Aylesbury High Street in 1972.

It was involved in the building of a new Co-op store, offices and underground car park (what is now QD).

Former Bucks Herald photographer Barry Keen admitted that he’d been ‘terrified’ taking this picture atop the crane.
