Old photographs offer a glimpse of Droitwich's past

First published in News

PHOTOS offering a glimpse into Droitwich Spa's past have been revealed.

Photographs have been supplied by Bill Thomas, of Witton Avenue, and show his father AW Thomas and his grandfather AG Thomas.

AW Thomas ran a cart manufacturing business in Vines Lane on the site of St Augustine’s Church Hall.

All of the buildings in the photographs have since been demolished and houses now occupy the site.

One of the pictures shows AG Thomas as a young man, with the last cart the company built for the council before it switched over to motorised vehicles.

Droitwich mayor, Councillor Anne Taft, would like to hear from anyone who can identify the moustached man in the photograph.

Anyone with information, should contact Coun Taft at elizabethannetaft@hotmail.com.
