New factory unit for Worth Engineering (1 of 2)

I am grateful to Maurice Beeching for supplying a small collection of photographs coverimg the construction of a factory unit for Worth Engineering in Brighton Road, Handcross.
The photograph shows some of the directors in their playtime!
From the left they are Maurice Beeching (Works Director), Bryan Pattison (Director), Mrs Vida Pattison (Company Secretary), and George Pattison (Managing Director).
More photographs of the building works can be seen on pictures 1707 to 1710. These were contributed by former employee of Worth Engineering, Brian Message.
Select Open Document to view three more photographs showing Mrs Pattison gracefully dismounting from the dumper truck, an unknown person using the crane as a climbing frame, and somebody actually working on the project!
