Hi John, My father (Arthur Leroux) and brother (Jeff) both worked at J R Pearson (shopfitters), in the 50s and 60s. When we moved to Cannock in 1962 dad used to use 2 buses and the train to get to work. JohnUsed to go to a firm in Porchester Street called J.R.Pearson, used to make nameplates and such, this was in the middle 50's.
