Thomas was born and lived at Grundy Street Poplar. He died in 1976. The photograph has the Lloyd Loom warehouse in the background. To the right was Kelloggs Corn Flake factory (more likely the puffed wheat factory. E.H.). Thomas became a tally clerk in the docks. The family moved away in 1936 to open a ‘Baby and Wool' shop in Penge, which flourished. Donated by Mrs Nisbet
