Pics from the Past (but when?)

eanwhile down at Faringdon there's a couple of likely lads...

AlBum has put a fresh dose of two stroke mix in his scanner (and you thought all HP Scanjet 3000 models used rotary engines) and managed to get these two surveillance shots of a couple of rum looking characters that he spotted loitering outside his house one day.

"Can Alan come out to play please?"

Not having supplied any date information on these two all my guesses have been based on Eccles' hair length. So I'll take a punt at '98. Any offers?

And, in addition and for no good reason whatsoever (that's fine, we like random here), AlBum adds:

"This weird cloud formation looks like the starship Enterprise entering a cloud bank prior to saving the whales and therefore the planet."

And so it does.
