One of my dads mates was the delivery blokes off the shop floor who appeared in the TV adds, I think his name was Harry, I'll ask him tomorrow
My father in law worked for a time at Davenports I would think it was in the 50's. His name was Ernie Watson, and I remember him telling me that
he used to work in the basement (perhaps it was the boiler room), and there was a huge old rat that used to sit on the pipes above. He told
me they used to throw things at it, but it was much too quick for them!
