Hi mort ;
nice to hear from you again been a little while yes they was a good honest company ,i do not whether or not they are still
trading but they got the big contract i think they took over where bryants left off at whitmore street smal heath
my friend micky started there as a young one and worked for years for them ;
from boy to manhood and worked his way up to senior foreman [ he was a grafter from the start ]
it was funny how we met when we was young, there was a young girl called carol in our youth days
and when we parted micky whom i did not know at the time started to court her ,after i packed her up
and thats as to be fifty years ago at least i beleive they moved to tysley next to a place called the truck stop in tysley
and the firm sold him the house next to there yard ; i don,t know whether they are stil there when i go to the office today i will pass the yard to tpo my bussiness just around the corner from it
will speak soon ,have a nice day ; alan ; astonian;;
