This follows on from image pa 1066 and shows the topping-out ceremony at the Swan in 1965. It looks as if Grimwoods were still working on the new building at the time of this event. Note the refreshment!
Foreman Jack Lock on the ladder. Carpenter Ronnie Wright on far left. The McQuhae family in the centre. Amongst those whose names have also been supplied are Roger King and plumber Russell Moulton. The McQuaes took over the firm from the Grimwoods in the 1930’s(?) but retained the business name.
