I would say this is a bit later than 76. Looks like a green wimpey van or other contractor. Men building the shed are probably building a tool shed for the work to start on the Marine Terrace flats and houses. Comment left on 02 February 2011 at 21:19 by Ronald Young
No I think you are wrong Ronald, it's not a Wimpey van as they did not do the Factory Refurbishment, it was Tullochs, (whose Vans were also Green). So close but no banana, but probably right about shed & date, you are so clever!! Comment left on 08 February 2011 at 20:45 by Anon
Aye thats right it was Tullochs not Wimpey, how did I manage to get that wrong. Comment left on 11 February 2011 at 15:09 by Ronald Young
