    That's eight, not seven or nine or sixteen. Eight is the age when our school and parents were snapping pictures of us - formal and informal. In Ireland, this was the age that we made our first Holy Communion - many pics came from that day. Then there was the annual school photo - let's see them...

    Here is me, aged eight - in 1970.

    And - I've still got that hair!

    This is so sweet. I can almost hear Michael Jackson singing along to this.

    Back when there was no such things as cell phones and domestic internet. We tuned by ear.

    Probably have a shot of me at 8, but this one is handy. I was 3 or 4 here, fawning over my dad’s new car, nothing changes!
