The Sans Johnson interview - you can listen / download on our Bootle Archive page if you have not heard it yet. It was done about 11/12 years ago I think, just before I set up the Bootle site.
It's about 8 minutes long and he talks about his memories of Johnsons and Bootle.
Link to page below... Look for Sans Johnson on the page.
I worked in the offices at Johnsons for two years, before moving to J Bibby in Liverpool. I remember Sands Johnson very well. In my time, ("Mr John") was the Chairman. I think he might have been a cousin. There were still some of the old Johnson family, including "Mr Sands". There was a special corridor that only people on a certain grade were allowed to use, because the Directors' offices were along it. I was one of the favoured few. Happy days.
