Re: Fairfax House

I worked at Fairfax House as the Masseeley operator printing the price cards for the goods in the shop, the Paternoster lifts were great fun we thought when the store opened.
Before that I was in the old Co-op doing the same job but stuck way up in the highest part on the roof in a little room which was called "The Ticket room".
I remember Mrs Knight who was on the Stationary dept.and the 'boys' from the footwear dept. Johnny, Maurice and Brian who used to come up to the Ticket Room for their tea break.
This was in the late 50's early 60's.
My friend and I sat on the wall accross the road from the old building and watched it being demolished, very sad.
