Gigney 'advertising plate' - the original.

John Wells shows us an original plate, and some family history from more recent times.

“Please see the pictures which I hope will prove of interest. The plate is the ORIGINAL plate handed down through the family;¬† it does not have the raised lettering around the edges.
The middle picture, taken before I joined the family, shows the GIGNEYS of then HAYWARDS  HEATH; they are (from the left) LESLEY GIGNEY, AUDREY GIGNEY, ALAN CALVER, WENDY GIGNEY, REGINALD F. GIGNEY and JILL GIGNEY, at the wedding of Wendy to Alan.

The bottom picture shows the family, less 1, standing outside the family shop in Haywards Heath – a gents’ barbers and a sweet shop.¬† Reg had sold the business by the time I met Jill (on the left), middle daughter Wendy is on the right. Lesley is not featured, but she worked at a local photographers for a time and could have taken the photograph.”
