The man with the big white moustache isn’t that Mr Arrowsmith of Arrowsmith’s haberdashery in Rodbourne Rd near to Witts’s paper shop.
Just along from Jackson’s shop above which my Grandmother Annie Walker Nee Evans was born.
The man with the white moustache is definitely Alec Newman who worked as senior foreman Electrician in the Railway Works.
His son, Brian Newman, was also a Foreman in the Works, he was a coach builder and married to my sister Sheila Hazell, who is still resident in their family home in Wroughton.
He also had a daughter who is still resident in Deburgh Street.
His mother-in-law, Mrs Wiltshire, used to own the corner shop in Deburgh Street.
The Newman family moved from Rodbourne and settled in Woodside Avenue (off Upham Road)
