Sure is Alan, was Strand M/cycles, then Coburn & Hughes, was my 1st Job there as apprentice m/cycle mechanic !!.

£4-10 pence a week, did not last too long !!. Sitting on 1gallon Petrol can, taking off clutch casing. Put casing behind me right side, p/can slipped from under me. Fell back arms out stretched, right wrist hit c/casing & sliced through my tendons !!. 2 weeks in hos, redundant !!.

Next job apprentice plumber, for Grant & Sons off Queensbridge Road Hackney. Traveled UK & Ireland Installing Laboratory test Plumbing, With Micky Dixon the Plumber. Who was a very good friend from Strand M/cycles!!.

Next Job after quitting the plumbing !!, was working for Lea Bridge Demolition, with the Haley boys. Brian,Terry, & think it was Alan although not sure ??. Their yard was on the Edmonton Industrial Estate. Some times working as a Top Man, with the pick axe, & sledge hammer. When taking down brick work in tight places !!. But most of the time driving a truck, delivering 2nd hand stock yellow Bricks !!.

Great days & memories !!, Could go on !!!!!!. 

Cheers Brian.
