Piecing together a pictorial record

ONE of my lasting memories when working at the Observer office building in Cambridge Road was the many old pictures that were on the walls of the staircase, that started in the reception area on the ground floor and proceeded upwards floor by floor.

I think they were pictures of past employees of F. J. Parsons Ltd.

I am putting together a collection of pictures which I am calling Parsons People. The ones on the staircase wall would certainly add some interest to my collection.

Some, I am sure, would be quite old. I cannot believe they were just thrown away in a skip when the building was cleared.

Does anyone remembers what happened to them. Hopefully someone saved them from destruction and put them somewhere safe.
