A few weeks ago I published a photo of local soldier Thomas Hobbs in India. But when he wasn’t serving his country he worked for the Portsea Island Mutual Co-operative (Pimco).
His son Roger has sent me another superb photo dating from about 1930 and he thinks it shows staff from local Co-op stores rehearsing for a show, perhaps a pantomime for a children’s party.
His father in this photograph – at the back with his dog which accompanied him in India. If you can recognise a family member, please let me know.
