Steve Foster has sent in these pictures of his father, Fred, after he became Mayor of Grantham in 1957.

The pictures include one of Fred with his wife, Peggy, at a children’s party. Bottom left is George Garrett, a familiar face around Grantham these days.

Fred is also pictured in what looks like a typing pool, having a go on a typewriter and being watched over by a boy. Do you recognised the boy? In another photo Fred and Peggy are pictured in what we think is the Journal print room.

Steve is writing a book about his father who was a prisoner of war and whose life was saved by a fellow soldier. Steve will give a talk on his father when he visits Grantham in October.

Do any of these pictures bring back memories for you? Email any information you may have to graham.newton@granthamjournal.co.uk or call 01476 541439.
