New pic of Syd at Cambridge Art School?

Nearly 2 months ago someone called Elizabeth Hamey posted this photo on a Facebook Syd group. She captioned it "HALCYON DAYS A photo I took of Syd at Cambridge Art School".

I've never seen this photo before and no one seems to have jumped on the fact this has never, to my knowledge, been published anywhere.

So, while that COULD very well be Syd in the middle, he was moving when the photo was taken and is a little blurry. Anyone who knew Syd then confirm it's definitely him or is there anyone who went to Cambridge Art School and they recognise this room?

I'm not saying it's not him, it could be. But also it could be someone who looks a bit like him.

Any comments gratefully received.

This is NOT Syd Barrett. I know this because I have copy of Nick Mason's Inside Out. If you can look on pages 22-23, guy on the top of the car identified by Nick Mason as CHRIS DENNIS. I believe he is the guy in the photo, and he was part pre-Floyd band The Tea Set, also w/ Bob Klose & Nick Mason.

I don't want to sound arrogant, but I think I'm right.

I know this because in Nick Mason's Book Inside Out - grab a copy if you can - pp. 22-23. See guy on top of car? That's Chris Dennis, and I 99% sure that's the guy in the picture (that you think is Syd). Chris Dennis was in pre-Floyd band, The Tea Set w/ Bob Klose and Nick Mason.

See for yourselves, and then you'll agree.
