I have one or two of those - they depict the factory as run by designers and not suits, and as a place where artistic flare is more important than economic viability/reality.

Although this was in the 1940s/50s, and may not have been too far from the truth - compared to today, at any rate.

Hi Nic,
Sadly my friend cannot help on this one.
However, the Gamage Building itself appears to be leased. So another way of skinning the cat may be to find out who owns it, and try them??
Try the Land Registry. Costs around a fiver to access the details of a property.
Regards,
Marcus

Thanks for trying, Marcus, as well as the ideas - I'll see what I can track down today.

Did you get my email about this, plus the translation thing?

I had a search for you too....I use a search engine that combines a lot into one big search. Didnt come up with anything...

One other suggestion, although its time consuming. ...I have been tracing my family tree and you find a lot of information that way. Maybe a check on a Bowman family tree might give up some information. Occupations and anecdotes and all sorts are listed on the trees.
