Witham Gas works, 134 Newland Street, group of builders. Looks as if they are demolishing something, but not really clear what; no proper scaffolding. The iron casting with the pattern on is the outer skin of the gasometer. Could possibly be Mr James Croxall, gas works manager, on right, to judge from much later photos when he also had a moustache and beard (eg Essex Weekly News, 26 June 1936, p.11, Carnival).
