AS Rockhampton's Bill Truscott cast his eye over last Monday's Blast from the Past, he was surprised to see himself staring up from the page.
It may have been a while ago now, but Bill said he still remembered the day the annual Thomas Brown staff photo was taken.
"I would have been about twenty years old," he said.
"We had one taken every year out on Derby St."
Bill, who is third from the left in the back row, started work at the Rockhampton wholesaler when he was just 15 years old.
"I worked there through the war years," he said.
"My job was mainly to break down rum and whiskey for the Yanks.
"It was a great crowd of people - we really were a family."
Bill wasn't the only one who recognised a face in the crowd.
For Roy Clarke it brought back memories of his late wife, May, who is also in the picture.
"She was a typist there," he said.
Roy said May was out at her uncle's place, near The Caves, when she was offered the job.
"Her father got on a pushbike and rode all the way out there at four in the morning to get her," Roy said.
"They raced back; she got scrubbed up and went straight to work without any breakfast.
"That was her first day."
Roy said he met May at a dance at the Rockhampton School of Arts.
"She loved dancing," he said.
The couple were married for 58 years.
Roy's daughter-in-law, Vicki Clarke also contacted The Morning Bulletin after seeing her grandfather, George Carter Senior, in the picture.
She believed he was the assistant manager.
Vicki said Elsa Cook and Norm Ellemor were in the 1948 photograph.
