Re: Cam Memorial Gardens

I remember the fish ponds there. The band stand was still being used. Best of all was the smell of Steel's bread opposite baking

Re: Surviving Dursley Pedersen cycles?

Grand Father served his apprenticeship at the Pederson Works. He went on to Mawdsley's when the Cycle works closed. I have some original pics of him in the works.

Re: Stan & Jim

Hi Yes I remember Jimmy and Stan. I worked in the machine Shop at Mawdsleys, during the 70's. Jim was on the Maintenance and maintained the machine tools as amongst many other tasks. I purchased a guitar from Jim, my Grandson is learning to play on it now. Stan used to work on the small Herbert caps...

Re: Who remembers any of the railway staff?

Hi Dave
Ernie was my Grandfather, Jim my Father.

It would be great to see any old photos.

I can remember Ernie stopping at the Cam level crossing, he used to give me 2 shillings to spend.

It was a very hard life!
