Edgar Phillips staff

What we know about this image :

Taken outside the John Street workshops, the photo was probably taken in the 1920s. The tall man in the centre is probably Edgar Phillips himself  with his wife Mary next to him in the  black dress. The young boy may well be a son possibly Ambrose or Ken who later took over the business.

The building in John Street ,which was one of the first West Hartlepool streets off Lynn St and behind Church Street, looks as if it could have been built from limestone  from the docks as Christ Church and the Athenaeum had been.
