Is that Johnny Kerfoot far left of the photograph also?

Alf Cartwight my old foreman at Henry Park St is seated in the centre of the picture. Hard but fair would be a decent description of Alf, as long as you got on with your work he would be ok with you. I've lost count of the number of times he let me nip out of work to go and watch the latics away. Hey maybe this comment will tug at the heartstrings of the current Bulldog hierarchy and we will once again be free to move in and out of work when we feel like it... ok I'll take that as a no.

I think my younger brother Ken followed Alf Cartwright as Foreman

No stuat its Harry Eastham

Comments by Bluesfan, 27th August 2008  
Hi Harry, yes Ken followed Alf. Ken was a cracking foreman, bit more laid back than Alf and another one who was more than fair with you if you did your work. Even forgive him for being a big Bolton fan!

Just a guess at a name - but follow the path.
TV - man sat directly behind wearing glasses - the man stood behind him is BRIAN SCRIVENS (i think) he played for Wigan RL -
where are
George Melling (Works Manager in the 60's) -Dennis ????????? (Sales Director).
Frank Darbyshire (Managing Director).
I worked for the group in the 60's and Group offices were in Darlington St.
Can anyone add any more names
