We were reviewing a book and found this interesting picture from 1960 of a 27 year old Fred Newman, then gossip editor of the Daily Sketch. He is with Rosemary McLellan their Scottish 'stunt-girl'.
The picture was part of a book ' Scandal: a scurrilous history of gossip' by Roger Wilkes. It appears that Fred's early editor days stood him in good stead for his later life running Publishing News. He is quoted 'Our policy is to entertain.' No change there then!
Still miss the man and his wit.
