1918 Photograph
When my Dad died I found a professional photograph titled 'Fellows Magneto Com. Park Royal November 1918'. The picture appears to be of people who may have worked in the factory at that time. There are approximately 300 people in the photograph, it is of good quality and generally in good repair. It is about 39 inches x 8 inches.
If it is of interest to you please let me know.

  • Yes, by all means it is of interest. If you could supply a reasonably clear copy I'm sure collectors and historians will be grateful.
