  • As well as Fred Watkins, Rupert Ives( owner of the shoe shop in Fwk Rd) is also very prominent in these photos. He is standing to Fred’s right in the top one and very rigidly to attention on far right by the table in the 2nd one.
    I have been pondering for a long time on one face. Is that Peter Hawkins who was a long serving council employee (back- row far right )? Help me someone! 🤔 Graham.
