Left to right in the old photograph are five members of the staff of those days, Messrs C.A. Welby, apprentice painter (then 13); W. Alloway, a coach builder; W. Wilton, a journeyman painter; A. Brown, a blacksmith's striker; and W. Bilderbeck, a blacksmith. The building was on the site of Bonners' Garage."
