Lucas Marshall Lake Road Shirley

proper brummie kid
Hello

My Dad, Ray Nutting used to work for Lucas, initially at Shaftmoor Lane between the late 1940's and the late 1950's and again after a gap at Marshall Lake Road (I don't know when he started there) until his retirement in the mid 1970's. I came across these photos, which Lucas people may like to see.

The first is one taken of a wedding celebration - date unknown - I assume taken at Marshall Lake Road - my dad is obscured from view standing to the left of the table.
The second is at a Setters course (whatever that was!) - again date unknown. I don't think it's at Marshall Lake Road - I know he did some training at Great Hampton Street and I'd welcome views to confirm whether this was the case. My Dad is stood on the back row second from the right. I have absolutely no idea of any other names.

Gt Hampton Street was certainly where the Apprentice school was based also training courses were held there as well.
