Pickfords’ Salisbury branch in the early 1900s

This week, Sue Piper sent us a marvellous photo of her Grandfather Frank Harfitt, who used to work for Pickfords in the early 1900s.

This heirloom was found by his grand daughter Sue, who sent it to Pickfords so we could look back in history and remember our ‘Salisbury’ branch , way back in the early part of the century.

 According to Sue, Frank Harfitt was born in 1881 on the 17th March and worked in the removals business for his entire life. He lived in Fisherton Street, Salisbury. In those days the Pickfords branch had a stable yard for the horses.

Frank had a great love of horses and was also a great racing fan. We think Frank was the ‘Branch Manager’, certainly the boss, and is third from the left, wearing the boater.Fisherton Street, Salisbury.
