Photography by Ray Farley PETER COLLINGE 90 TH BIRTHDAY PARTY Peter Collinge celebrated his 90th birthday at the Andrew Collinge Salon, Castle Street, Liverpool. The evening was a reunion of many of those staff, old and new, all of which have benefited from this training. Andrew Collinge made a speech paying tribute to Peter’s achievements, which was followed by a film of Peter’s photographic work, archive photos and messages from staff from all over the world. Margaret McQuaid, his first apprentice in 1954, made a presentation of a birthday cake together with the newest and youngest recruit to the Andrew Collinge apprenticeship programme, David Randles. The evening was a glowing success and a fitting celebration for Peter’s exceptional contribution both to the hairdressing world and to the city of Liverpool. Happy Birthday Peter! 92 wirrallife.com
