The Editwriter was an important piece of modern technology in 1987. Paul Dixon adds a note that as far as he remembers, the equipment was dusted down and continued working "as if nothing had happened".
In this picture from Paul Dixon, the R.H.I. automated imposition system is being installed at the Medway City Estate factory.
This photo from Paul Dixon shows Len Williams loading the camera ready copy onto the R.H.I..--This automatic assembly system planned the pages into the set position and produced a one piece film assembly. This was instead of having to tape single pages of film down onto a transparent foil and was a massive innovation at that time.
Out on the light table Len Williams has the completed one piece film. On the glass you can see the red 'stopping out' pen for touching up any spots or blemishes that may have been transferred to the film and will not be wanted on the printing plate. Tony Styles discusses the progress.------------Photo from Paul Dixon.
A Board meeting of some sort probably. All the big guns. Left of the group is Paul Dixon, then Tony Styles, Debbie Jocobi ( p.a. to JQ.), John Quinney, Clive Martin, Peter Gray and Bob Candler.--------photo from Paul Dixon.
Peter Gray and his wife Winnie cutting the cake at, we believe, Peter's retirement party.
This photo from Paul Dixon shows him having, what looks like a jolly good time. He says he dosen't remember where it was taken or EVEN WHO HE WAS DANCING WITH.-------- However Ken Turner on the left and Peter Simmons on the right seem to be making, what could be some very improper suggestions.
At a wedding in the rain, Peter Simmons stands with his wife Catherine, whilst Judy Dixon has the furled umbrella. This was at the wedding of John Quinneys' son Andrew, in Lanlivery Cornwall. Photo from Paul Dixon

The first of three maps from Barry Cox, this one shows Love Lane with very little housing except at the St Margarets Street end. Dated 1898
The next one from Barry shows houses along to where the 'cottages' were, (see The Coopers Arms page 3 about the ghosts) and shows the outline of the abottoir that was to become the print works. --This one is dated 1909
The last one from Barry shows many more buildings and even the bailing shed on the yard. Note that the Esplanade was called Willis Avenue. The date is 1934.
Here is a good old photo sent in by Tony Styles--- it shows himself, nearest camera and Allen Quy, having a lunchtime break in the Castle Grounds.
Another photo from Tony, this time he is holidaying with Alan Luckhurst in Spain in 1968. In those days, going to Spain seemed like going to another world.
