Do any readers recognise the chaps in this photograph from 1961?
It was taken by Col Macleod, of Blackpool, in the rear yard of the Fylde Water Board headquarters in Sefton Street – a building long ago flattened and the land swallowed up by the sprawling Houndshill Centre.
Col says: “The offices were being refurbished at the time, only to be demolished in 1975.
“I was employed as an apprentice electrician by Bennisons, who were based in Bond Street, South Shore.
“One or two of these chaps, maybe more, will have passed on by now but will probably have families in Blackpool.”
Col says that he is not sure of names but looking left to right the men were somebody who worked in accounts or wages, a painter called Brian, another painter, a yardman called Jack or Bill, and the man far right was, Col thinks, the chief accountant.
If anyone can identify the men either ring Col on 07741141338 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
