I worked as designer with Bevingtons at Neckinger Mills, closely associated was Dolcis Shoe Co, Upsons warehouse Gt Dover St, opp Borough station, corner Trinity Rd. Anyone remember the big block with 18th century house attached south side, that was my studio. What is there now? Are there any old pictures? Eunice Wilson

From your description I think you'll find it's still there. Check google street view.

Are you the Eunice Wilson who wrote the book on researching RAF records? I found that book really interesting and invaluable in my family history research.

My Nan worked at the Dolcis factory at the Borough in the 30s. Her Dad had wanted her to go into service, but she went out and got a job with better pay and conditions at Dolcis.
