I used to work in the personnel office at Egens from 1963 till 1975 and I am sure the lady next to Brian is Dorothy Hendry??? I also know the man facing the camera with arms crossed but am still trying to remember his name.

I worked at Eagens in 1960-1961 and remember John Seals and John Alterman. Also working there then was Joe Overs' brother. He may be the chap on the extreme right but not sure.

Lovely to see some of the 'old' faces from Egan Electric.I worked there 3 times over the years, My mum worked there for 26 years until she retired. While searching through her large collection of photos after she died in 2012, I found many from her working time at Egan's and I have a lovely one of Mr Angus.

Mum first worked for E.K.Cole (Southend) when she was a teenager, back then it was seasonal work and her other job was in 'Chapples'  at Lakeside Corner.

When Mum first worked at Egan's I remember that a couple of weeks she wasn't fit enough for work so the firm sent her some homework round so that she wouldn't be down on her wages.

I also remember that one year the parent company hired a train and sent all the staff of E.K Cole and Egan's up to London to see the Ice Show 'Rosemarie'. everyone was supplied with a 'Supperbox' to enjoy as and when they felt hungry and a good time was had by all.

Those were the days!
