Wickford Chamber of Trade Christmas party

Photograph from the 1950's

My father, Charles ‘Ginger’ Fuller, was a member of Wickford Chamber of Trade. I was unable to find him in this photograph, it is likely as soon as he saw the camera he vanished from the marquee.

My Mother stayed and is the fourth women from the left seated.

Photo-Flash, London Road, Wickford Tel Wickford 2341!!!

  • I too remember the Gadson family when at secondary school in Market Road in the late 40s/early50s.  At one time I had a schoolboy crush on the daughter at the time, (was it Valerie?)

  • I went to junior school with Jennifer Weeks! My sister, Valerie, was named after Valerie Gadston as my brother, Derek, went to school with Valerie Gadston when he was about 5 years old and wanted that name for his new sister.

  • Yes Jennifer (nee Weeks) it’s me, Frankie! Remember Coronation Day? 

    Lorraine Taylor – Valerie is my sister and we both went to Miss Hutchinson’s.  We did have garages on Southend Road and Nevendon, Fuller & Gadsdon. This site put me in touch with John Fuller, son of my dad’s business partner.

  • Valerie Gadston, she went to St George’s School. Did her family own a garage at Wickford?

  • Yes, my mother, Christina GADSDON is the lady standing third from the right (wearing a necklace). No sign of my father who also hid from cameras or closed his eyes!

  • So mum and dad will be in there too, unless my dad also left before the photos which he did a lot!
