My father worked at Patterson Edwards, Leeway from the early 60's (or earlier) until they went bust in the early to mid 70's. The offices may have been on the Old Kent Road before this time but the office/factory I first knew was on Lee High Road in Lewisham. I visited it many times as a young child often playing with the toys, pedal cars and rocking horses in the showroom.

The company moved to Orpington in about 1970 and I visited this office and factory also.
