Bohee's, the printers, 1920s

Margaret provided this photo in April 2013, it is one of over 40 in a journal kept by a young man (his first name may be George) who worked for Bohee's the printers around 1919-1924. Margaret hopes to re-unite the journal with his family and adds that the journal includes wonderful photographs of his cycling trips with two friends over four years.
7 men taking a break outside Bohee's
The photo above was taken outside Bohee's, who were at 58 and later 58 & 59 High Street. Perhaps the men worked there and are taking a break? But they are not in their working clothes? The building used by Bohee's was still standing in 2002, painted white.

The photo below shows the young man, 'George?', at work inside Bohee's.

Inside Bohee's, man at printing press

Please get in touch if you recognise any of the men, particularly the young man in the second photo.
