Hob­son’s trip down Mem­ory Lane

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

THESE rail­way work­ers ap­pear to be in good spir­its as they take a break from their daily shift.

The picture was sent in to me by reader Ca­role Waudby, who said the man in the cen­tre, with a cig­a­rette on the go, was her dad John Wil­liam Buck.

Mrs Waudby added: “We lived in St James Av­enue, in New Eng­land, and my fa­ther worked on the rail­way for many years un­til his re­tire­ment. I don’t know the names of any of the men in the photo but they seem to be hav­ing a good time!”

Do you recog­nise any of the other men? To­day’s other two pho­tos are from Mrs J Plant’s col­lec­tion of Peter­bor­ough’s Bur­ton Street bowl­ing club,
