Pimco panto, oh yes it is?

Musicians from branches of the Portsmouth Co-op (Pimco) rehearsing for a panto perhaps? Note the dog on the piano.

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.
