Martin Jones has been scanning again - Four items from A level Economics in 1967/8

"Four items from A level Economics in 1967/8. I think this was written by David Coy in his own fair hand, and if it was (and I can probably find out later), this ran quite contrary to the custom of several teachers at Purley to dictate notes at great speed from a textbook. One geography teacher and later Deputy Head was a particular culprit ! "

David Coy has now confirmed that the writing is his from almost 50 years ago. The drawings on p3 are not however his and the culprit is being sought! David's time at Purley from 1967 to 1970 was the last time that he taught economics in his teaching career (and thank goodness he did!). He sends his regards to OPs from his home in New Zealand. They are coming into autumn now but he is still getting out on the motorbikes each week, a R850R BMW and a 650 Honda Deauville. Not bad for somebody who was teaching 50 years ago!
