This is outside the breakers in 'Germany' number 2 Dept.
I have no idea why the workers are carrying picnic baskets.
It was no picnic working there.

The guy second from the right with his thumb in his pocket is my Dad, Charles (Wag) Lomas. I think the baskets are just for carrying 'Snap'(packed lunch)

Hi Lou,

I did some work for Hall's at the Botany and knew Charlie Lomas and Tommy who I think was his brother.
Tommy worked on the Germany Kiers but I can't remember where Charlie worked.
Tommy lived up Long hill at Flanders.
Did Charlie live at the Owlers?

Hi R.- SS

Only just picked up your comments. Yes Tommy was my uncle and my dad lived at the Owlers next to the old chip shop. He worked on the main tower Kiers.

I knew Charlie's wife Freesia Lockett of the decorating family - she was my mum's cousin.

Tommy and Charlie's Dad Tommy married my Mums sister Nellie Seel. Tommy and Nellie had four boys and twin girls.
