Mr Chetwynd at the Green Bushes Hotel, Stockton

The caption written on the back of this photograph is, ‘Mr G. R. Chetwynd M.P. for Stockton gives a warm handshake to Mr James Castell (85) the oldest member when gifts were made from the Stockton Corporation Retirement fund at a social held at the Green Bushes Hotel, Stockton. Others in the picture are (from L to R) Mr W.A. Pearson, Mr Frank Bailey (chairman), Mr Hugh Allan and Mr Walter Hudson’. My granddad, Frank Bailey, was born in 1902 and began working for Stockton Corporation in 1916 as a tram conductor. When he retired in 1963 he was a depot inspector. He died in 1992.
