We got our hands on Harry Gill’s photographs of Patons and Baldwins after they were very kindly brought into the office by his daughter, Phyllis Higton.
She said: “My dad worked at the Mercury for years and years. Since he died I’ve been going through all his old shots and there’s hundreds and hundreds of them, so I thought I’d share them with everyone.
“I thought people might like to see these pictures of Patons and Baldwins, as they might recognise some of the people in the pictures.”
If you recognise any of the workers in this picture, or have any old photos to share, get in touch with us.
