My mum worked there in the packing and issuing dept. her name Florrie Grange she was always singing. A group of the girls went to Ireland for a holiday She really enjoyed working there. i worked there in the office then in packing and post. i got a good send off when I got married. I have been in W Australia since 1983. But i do recogise some of the people in this photo, but not the names. Thanks for the memories. Cheers Viv
