London, February 1987

Anton's 50th Birthday


They came from far and wide, friends and 'acolytes' of the Master. They were here to join with Anton to celebrate his Fiftieth Birthday in London.

The moment is captured in this photograph taken outside of the Natural History Museum on the Cromwell Road. A few valiant colleagues have ventured to wear bow ties imitating what has become one of Anton's matchless hallmarks.

The theme of the party saw multiple tables of ten; each table representing the many countries that Anton had visited. The guests at the tables were from that respective country and each table was served a different menu.
