  • I started work at Trewin Brothers in April 1958 in the Carpet Department, as shown in the photograph. Unfortunatly the photograph has been printed the back to front as the linoleum was on the right as you entered the department from the main shop.I was taken on by Mr Timson himself, no staff office in those days. He was also manager of the Furniture Department and Gardening. He was also Deputy General Manager.

  • I remember visiting the Carpet Dept as a child. My father Oliver was the Dept Manager there at the time. Whilst the Nissan Hut served its purpose of housing the carpets unfortunately was prone to flooding on occasions.
