My First Job - a Memory of Barkingside.

I worked for Green and Dysons/FC Dysons in the high street during 1960/61. I can recall the manager's name as being Tom Lott. Mrs Hearn worked in the canteen, well a corridor really rather than a proper canteen. From memory I think that we had 3 people including myself with the first name of Vic. Mac worked in the warehouse, does anyone out there have any more memories of this shop around this time? It would be good to hear.
