I worked at "TOMMIES" from 1951 to about 1957. I worked in the electrical maintenance dept not in the factory proper.

In the late 1950s I worked in this shop as a coach painter painting road rollers and agriculture equipment, the painting was all done by brush also was the pin striping, no decals in those day's. Neville Tires was our foreman, also I remember a Joe Capitarno who was charged with keeping all the gangway's clear.
