A Discography

  Conception & research: Pierre-F. Roberge For comments, additions and corrections ( continuing this discography for PFR ) Last update: 11/30/2012 This is an " under construction " and for now a quite complete discography of David Munrow.

They are believed to be the three members of the Munrow family. At the top ofcourse, the young person on the left is believed to be David Munrow. The following pics of the same woman are probably his mother Hilda who used to teach dance, and at the bottom Albert Davis ("Dave") Munrow who was a well-known, and respected PE instructor. Incidently, one of my contacts claimed that he was always worried whenever his son went rock climbing!!  I may try, or not to get some better reproductions of the images presented.RS
