Hi
I'm trying to find out more about this photo of my grandad Frank Hammond. He's on the second row, 4th man along from the left. I've been told it was taken on an organised trip through his workplace - which I think at the time of the photo - was Limehouse Paperboard Mills. On the far right of the picture, over a door frame, you can just about read the text - Mann, Crossman and Paulin, which was a national brewery.
I think the picture was taken in the Isle of Dogs/ East End somewhere.
Any help that anyone can give me would be much appreciated.

Tessa :)

I can see the photo!!
I think it was a usual thing for companies to hold 'works outings' - I have a few photos of men on works outings from a brewery in Burton on Trent from last century.
Suggest that you contact the Limehouse Board people who are still going, they probably have an archivist who may be interested to see your photo. They have a brief chronology of the company on their website here http://www.limehouse-board.co.uk/about.html
Good hunting! Sylvia

Thanks Cyclec, I contacted them and received a very quick response from the Managing director of the company who knew my Granddad very well. Thanks for your advice.

Tessa :)
