Cambridge Service Limited

Circa 1930

This is a photograph of my father and his business partners standing outside "Cambridge Service Limited" which was situated on the corner of Cambridge Terrace and Colombo Street, right hand corner over the Bridge of Remembrance where the demolition of Sacchi's building has recently occurred. The old truck is a Hupmobile (circa 1926-1931). The people are (left to right): Mervyn Feutz (apprentice), Neil Walker, Bill Hampton (my father) and Fred Murray. I have many memories of cycling over the bridge, down the rise and into the forecourt. Also sitting on the roof shortly after the war to watch Field Marshall Montgomery's calvacade pass by.
