LOL I can see allot of faces on the three photo's I knew Thanks

By the way in 1959/60 there was no warehouse at Wigan in them days to stack the reels in only the factory or outside plus no clamp-trucks for unload only forklift

Loved seeing my dad Jimmy Dawber who drove for Reeds for over 20 years. His best mate was Les Gaskell. Any photos of the pair! Other things anyone got photos of Christmas parties or Pantos paid for by Reeds for drivers children togo too. We think we went to Liverpool & manchester on a coach but so long ago ????.
