A photo of the staff from the office that my Mum (Ivy Jones, nee. Powell)used to work in. My Mum is in the centre of the back row. She used to work in the Civil Service at one time,probably in the 1950s, but I don't know if this is that office. I don't know where or when the photo was taken.

The pplate to the right says " H.M." so its during you mothers civil slave times. Brocol house maybe ?

I think that Brocol House was only built in the early/mid sixties.

David I think this is Bridgeman House, the tax office.
I was brought up with your uncle Keith.

It looks like outside the Tax Offices at the top of Bridgeman Terrace

When my dad had to go to this tax office he called it "THUTS"

for none wiganese speakers that meant "The Huts" long before this new building there were some wooden ones.
