Looking Back Gas showrooms Eastbourne

Looking Back reader Barbara Penfold has brought in two pictures for the enjoyment of others.

The first is of the old gas showroom at Eastbourne Gas Company as it was known then at 85 Terminus Road.

Mrs Penfold started working in the showroom in 1952 at the age of 15. She believes the photo may have been taken at the turn of the century.

The second photograph is a large group of workers at Plummer Roddis in Terminus Road. Pictured fifth from the left is Avis Boniface, now Avis Clarke, and her brother Peter is seventh from the left.

If you recognise yourself in the photograph, do get in touch with us here at Looking Back on 414482 during office hours or write to us at Looking Back, Eastbourne Herald, Berkeley House, 26 Gildredge Road, Eastbourne, BN21 4SA.
