The Moseley School of Art Association
Edwin 'Moggy' Mason
"I was born, like everyone else at a very early age in 1923; so yes, you can now work out my age. I was christened at Moseley as 'MOGGY' in 1946 - a name that I have been pleased to have ever since, until my grand children called me OPA.
Talking of exhibitions, were you one of those who came with us to the 1951 Festival of Britain? That was some show. Then came the school visit to the Brussels International Exhibition. It was the first time that a school had flown abroad and we had to get special consent from the Birmingham Education Committee. I went round many travel agents to get a reasonable quote. In the end, after several saw the potential for publicity of running such a venture I got a wonderful price of £11-5p which included air fare, transport to and from the airport, and entrance to the Exhibition. BBC television filmed the outing.
( It is hoped that Moggy will allow me to obtain from him many more of his memories so that they may be uploaded - the above is Moggy's own first attempt at using a computer - not bad for a first attempt at the age of 83 ! Graeme Collins )
