Island History Trust Image Collection


"Vanestas 1916. The work force photographed, perhaps including both office and production staff. May have been taken to mark a special occasion, or simply for the record. It was found among a collection belonging to Ken Hunter, whose maternal grandfather, Harry (Henry) King, is in the back row. Vanestas was at No 246 Westferry Road, and also had a site in Silvertown." From K. Hunter
