I sent mum the pic, and unbelievably she failed to recognise Dot at first (thought it was a girl she grew up next door to!) Ah well. I did identify her later and the penny dropped. TBF, she's nearly ninety and her eyesight is far from good...
Well, Kathy was probably the last victim of the curse, as succeeding girls seem to be immune. Oh my That said … As in most offices, certain personalities came to the fore to enliven the daily grind. One such character was Margaret – the food lady – a larger-than-life woman who trundled her refreshment cart down the corridor and visited every office room. Regular as clockwork when it was time for the morning and afternoon tea break, Margaret would open the door and, with a booming basso voce growl, announce, “Food!” This would get everyone’s attention and there would be a scramble to buy cups of tea, sandwiches and filled batches from this formidable vendor. Although sullen in appearance, Margaret had a keen sense of humour that she let slip once in a while. … Big grin Nice that your mother recognized Doris (given some prompting). Thumbs up

I'd been made redundant before Kalmar took over, but my good friend Paul Knight was still there (and until he moved to Jag in '88). Don't think he was over-enamoured, but then, the previous management (Lansing Bagnall/Emmanuel Kaye, basically) did the company no favours either. I was there when Kaye took over.
