The Labour In Vain - 1900

The Labour In Vain public house

1900: The building shown in this drawing used to be a Public House called 'The Labour In Vain'. The sign depicted a small coloured boy, sitting in a bath, being scrubbed with a wooden handled scrubbing brush. The sign would certainly not be allowed in the political correctness of today.



Hawkins Transport - 1999

Hawkins Transport

1999: The home of Hawkins Transport, which now has to be one of, if not the oldest surviving business, apart from farming, in Eaton Bray. Formed in 1935 by Fred Hawkins.
