Is there still that many work there today?
i started work at the sorting office in 1977,i can see a few people on there i remember,a lot i cant though.
I well remember this photo It was taken by a postman named Tommy Mason most will know him by his nickname Catweazle he was real character, also a photographer, most of them are now gone, one or two who still work there and are on the photo, Alan (Holly) Almond and Alan Greenhalgh I was probably working when this was taken! the reason some are not on it is that they may have been on night shift, afternoons or holidays.
I started in 1976 and stayed for about 11 years.Some faces I can put a name to are Charlie Browm,Alan Greenalgh,Witchipoo,Dave Gregg,Roy Webster,Peter Baxter,Ronnie Hilton,Trevor Latham,Joe Gibson.I know many others but can't recall their names.
