This picture shows the staff at Biggs Wall in Cromwell Road, N10.. I don't know when it was taken. My father is in the back row fourth from the left, wearing a pale shirt and a bib and brace overall. He was born in 1904 so if you can guess his age it may help date the picture

The gentleman in the front row (sitting) left with the suit on was, I believe, a great uncle, although could possibly have been a great grandad.

Hello Gordon, are you related to the Wall family? I am doing some research into the family and wondered if you could help?

Have just seen this photo. My father is standing 2nd from left, wearing a tie and jacket. He was a secretary and had learnt shorthand and typing. He had polio as a child. I don't know when he started, but he left in 1941 or '42, I am not sure exactly when.
