Old Photos of Witham

Two men at the gas works

Taken: 1930s approx, Ref: M2162

Two men at the gas works. Probably the same camera as M2161, both have ‘Velox’ on the back, hence the estimated date of 1930s. The two men look like the ones on the back row of photo M63, third and fourth from left. so the right-hand one may be fitter Bert King; the name of the small left-hand one isn’t known.

Date taken1930s approx
SourceWebb, David. 87 Station Road, Manningtree, Essex. CO11 1ED The photos formerly belonged to Lucy Croxall and her sisters. A relative of theirs from the Midlands (perhaps a brother) asked David, who was driving him in a taxi, to dispose of them about the 1980s, perhaps when the sisters moved to a home or when one died.
