I worked as an apprentice electrician for Miller & Stables from 1958 until 1961, and remember:

-   Mr McKay.  He was Manager.

-   Alex Stables, the boss.  He was Consul for the Dominican Republic.  We had a plaque outside our office.

(I've had a look on Google Earth for our old old building, but it all seems to be residential now.)

-   Willie Hay

-   Jimmy Lettice

-   Fred, the foreman

-   'Old Mac' , the storeman
