Harry Rutherford's Festival of Britain Mural
Hi Tom,Fletcher Millers had a garage/workshop behind Rosemount Methodist Church for their vehicles. I remember seeing the blue lorries coming and going.I think that there is a window company on the site now.Regards, Dave Hamilton.
Yes now you mention it Dave I recall it now.... but I think it was Castrolby the time I moved to Newton.
hi tom, many thanks for posting this item. my father worked as a tanker driver for fletcher millers,and later castrol for over 25years. it was a community firm, holding dances and childrens parties. Though my father passed away many years ago i still meet children of those workers.my father was very proud to drive the first castrol tanker into the yard. it was huge then, nothing compared to the size of tankers these days.
Do some Sydneysiders look like these guys after dark? I believe it. Rene Magritte is indulging in something surrealistic here as well: http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-5ZKELZ, at wahooart.com.
I have been mates with one of Fletcher Millers Ex drivers for years one Peter Davis from Hyde over a few drinks he's told me about the good old days at Fletchers he mention's alot of names who he fondley remembers. Jim Mc Teggart.
