Les The Window Cleaner

A Memory of Barking

Does anybody remember the window cleaner who cleaned all the shop windows at Faircross shops during the fifties and sixties? He was always immaculately turned out in clean jeans with a perfect crease to each leg and a gleaming white "T"shirt, whatever the weather. His shoes were always highly polished. I think his christian name was Les. Would love to know more about him. As I recall he was also something to do with the early management of Brian Poole and the Tremeloes. Info, anybody?.
