In 1964 when these pictures were taken John Grosbard worked in the ISTC at Paddington. They may remind you of him.
I remember John Grosbard very well. I worked with him in 1975 when I first joined the ITMC at Paddington until I was seconded to L M Ericsson for the development of the new AXE132 telephone exchange from August 1978 until mid 1981. It must have been during this time that John and Alf Culloden retired but I am not sure. May be some of the other guys who worked at Paddington during that time can update me. We shall see.
The pictures and a few words (below) were provided by his daughter, Susan Mirande-Grosbard, who now lives in Amsterdam.
These pictures were taken in Feb. 1964 – I was only 9 years old.
My Dad worked his entire life shift work… Something that had always made me still to this day walk around on tippy toes….
He sent these photos to his sister who lives in LA and I received them back a few years ago when she decided to clean up the family photos….
