Memory Lane: Mayor of Grantham Fred Foster pictured in the 1950s
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.
