My grandfather (left back row) worked for MacDonald Syers for years. They were a lift engineering and electrical business based in Calvin Street, Shoreditch East London.
Here they all are very smartly dressed on a works outing to the seaside. Margate in Kent in June 1949.

East London History - East End Facts
I grew up on the fringes of London's true East End and have been fascinated by the ever changing history and landscape of the area.
Visitors and tourists to London may only ever explore the City centre but for those that care to travel further east, a rich and rewarding travel adventure awaits. So much of London's history owes a debt to the East End. Colourful characters, famous architecture, hidden treasures of changing life over the years.
