R.I.P Jimmy Forsythe

Jimmy Forsythe, who died aged 95 on July 11 hardly qualifies for inclusion on a jazz site even though his life probably mirrors that of an early jazz musician.
He was a photographer - not one of your David Baileys or Lord Litchfields but a man of the people who snapped life as he saw it in and around Newcastle. His stark black and white images captured his home city as few others have. Click here if you doubt me.
One of his most memorable shots was of the Royal Arcade Jazz Club which is my excuse for this obituary. Unfortunately I haven't got a copy but it is available in one of his books.
A true character, Jimmy was active almost to the end.
I'm grateful to Russell for drawing this sad news to my attention.
Lance.
