PAFEC – Photographs of Strelley Hall, 1990

I have singularly failed so far to find my copy of the staff photograph from 1986, taken on the lawn at Strelley Hall to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the company. I’ll keep looking, but in the meantime, these are the photographs of the hall taken in 1990 by Derek Barley, who also provided the pictures of the Stapleford office for my earlier post.

The first picture is of the stables, with one of the PAFEC vans parked outside. I spent the first 18 months or so of my working life after university in the stables and I remember it being particularly cold during the winter of 1985/86, when my rear-wheel drive Skoda Rapid 120 was one of the few cars able to make it safely along Strelley Lane one snowy morning.

    P.S. Fun times… Trying to compile DOGS, BOXER, etc on the Harris 24-bit OS. (Yes, young folk, look and disbelieve: someone once thought a 24-bit compiler was a good idea…)
