Harringtons Apprentices 1952

Thos Harrington Apprentices - Summer 1952

Looking through my Dad’s photos, I found this one of him and his fellow apprentices at the Thomas Harrington Coachworks in Hove, in the summer of 1952. Dad had so many great stories to tell of his time there. He was involved in building the coach bodies for the Ernie Johnstone miniature coaches that ran at Peter Pan’s.

It’d be wonderful if any relatives of the fellas see this pic and post some memories. Also, Dad never did say what ‘Spiv’s real name was… 🙂
