I have started to scan the pictures and would very much like to add more details from

When I , Ian Lindley, and several other apprentices started working for Alwyn Isherwood Ltd. in 1955
'Isherwoods' had four City & Guilds Qualified Television Engineers .......
1) The late George Crossland - Service Manager in those days - and our Technical College Lecturer !
2) The late Eric Youhill,
3) The late Anthony Gelald Stokes, (Tony or 'AGS'), and, of course..
4) Peter Hauxwell, (very young for a qualified engineer !!).
Television was relatively new in those days, monochrome, (black and white), small screen, and only one
channel (405 line BBC 1) until ITV was introduced around 1958.
625 line BBC2 arrived much later and Colour TV in 1967
As apprentices and students for TV service work at Huddersfield college,
Peter kindly loaned us his car.
