50 Years Service at Cookes

 

50 Years of Service at Cookes

In August 1947 a social evening was held to commemorate the retirement of 5 veteran craftsmen at Cookes. Messrs A Harrison, T Dwyer, C Grewer, W Wrigley and J Danby all had worked for over 50 years at Cookes, they all stared at Cookes at the end of the 19th century.

The social evening was held at the clubhouse where Mr E W Taylor joint managing director and son of HD Taylor who designed the Cooke Portrait Lens attended to present the proceeds of collections to each of the retired men.


Some of Mr Taylor’s anecdotes were enlightening to a younger generation, whilst others created amusement which continued with responses fro m the honoured guests.

It was a very pleasant evening.
