Hi all, I am the lad sitting holding the golden goose story book. I was Steve Self then and now Steve Gunn. Thanks for posting the pic as I have no pics of myself at that age now. Regards
Worthing for me, even the concrete plinth it’s built on, is the same square shape today as then. The Hove building is not square and the concrete plinth has rounded corners to match the building shape. The Worthing rain shelter has a smaller shelter further east, it looks further away today but it may well have been moved.
I am Uncle Brighton’s daughter and I would like to organize a reunion. Just comment underneath if you are interested in joining in.
Hi Julie, I know I am 10 years late in replying but my cousins, brother & I are Peter & Phyllis’s grandchildren and we would love to make contact with you. If anyone knows Julie M please can you ask her if she has seen this message? Looking forward to hearing from you, Penny
I was an articled clerk to Chartered Accountants, Dixon Wilson Tubbs and Gillet of Basinghall Street, London from 1953-6. We had an annual visit to Dubarry’s, as we were the auditors. The accountants are now know as Dixon Wilson and may have some records. Their address has changed.
I remember the perfume smell on the bus from the employees as we left and the distinctive nature of the packaging all of which was made in-house
I lived in Steine House (YMCA) 1970-1972 and they may be able to assist, although it’s now a long time ago.
