Re: Palmers Joiner shop with some names
Tom Barker, hope you recover soon and are reasonably comfortable., Tom followed in my foot steps at Palmers Joiner Shop, as I also served my apprentice ship there as a woodworking machinist leaving in 1955. The shop was composed of three sections at one end a small French Polishing shop partitioned off to avoid dust. The main area as photographed for manufacturing,in this photograph they were working on four drawer chesterdraws a militiary contract. The other open area was the machine shop were Tom and I worked. Unfortunately other than Jim Rickerby the only one I recognized the little guy to the right of Jim wearing a peak cap coveralls and tie looks like Percy Doughty, he was the lead hand in the machine shop. Norman a big thank you for this photograph, couldn't believe my eyes when it popped up on my screen, could almost smell the wood dust.
