Jack Pillinger and the Gas Company Hole.



This photo was taken by Mr John Uren the chemist in Downend. My Dad, Jack Pillinger, is the one on the right. Can anybody name the other two? The names Frank and Bill come to mind, but this could be incorrect. Although the press cutting from the Evening Post is dated 1981, the photo is much earlier, in the 1960s I believe. Note the lack of traffic!  Can anyone else remember the Gas Company Hole? Did Mr Uren take any other photos of the Gas Company men who dug it up and filled it again over the years?
