Nutty Norah's Don Allen photo album - part one

Norah Swallow, as she was then, Norah Barnes as she is now, ran Don Allen's fan club. Don had a lot of fans and “Nutty Norah” was kept busy looking after them. These photos of Don are from her private collection. The pictures on board Radio Caroline North were taken by crew members with Don's camera, the Isle of Man photo was taken by Don's Caroline colleague Bob Stewart and the photos in her home were taken by Norah's late husband. We are extremely grateful to her for sharing them. Any captions in inverted commas are Don's own comments, as written on the back of the original photos. Please note that Norah owns the copyright. These pictures must not be reproduced without her permission.
