Conrad And Co - a Memory of Bengeo.

My first employment was in the year 1945 when I started work at Conrad and company in Bengeo. I Cycled from Newgate Street Village every day. Conrad was a printing firm, and my first job was on a Cropper Charlton Press printing business cards and letterheads. The location of the firm was in the yard of a pub, I believe it was called the Greyhound. Next to the yard was a tobacconist shop run by a Mr ?. I stayed there until I was called up for National Service in 1949.
