Working life at Bobby’s


I am very interested in the photos of Bobby’s (Debenhams) in the 1960s.

I know Adele Snashall very well.

I used to work for Bobby’s as signwriter and display work.

I did many grottos with display staff and I was very happy with them.

Mrs Walker, Mr Parrott, Mr Bradley and Mr Bodle were my bosses (of Bobby’s Revue fame which I did some scenic work for his productions) and many girls with Adele from display department in the 1960s era. It was a golden era for me because the people working there were like a family.

Now I am retired and the display department is now very different from my days there.

It was my first job there, but that job was the best one because everyone worked for each other.
