Carter & Ward and the growth of Wickford in the 1920s and 30s

The 1920s and 1930s was a time of growth for Wickford. Continuing the massive imports of grain that had begun in the early 20th century, farmers were finding it difficult to make the land profitable, and many acres of land were being sold as building plots. Carter and Ward was one of the local companies who took up the challenge to build more house, the majority of which were bungalows. This photo shows a group of Carter and Ward builders in about 1935. Mr White is 2nd from the right. Can you name any of the other men?
