Arthur Measures retirement

The presentation to driver Arthur Measures, known as 'Prince' Measures, upon his retirement.
Arthur Measures was born in Sleaford on 17th August 1887, so this photograph probably dates from August 1952 when he would have reached the age of 65.
In the 1911 census Arthur was a Railway engine cleaner, lodging with a railway porter and his family in Grantham. During the 1920s 'Prince' Measures was one of the regular firemen of Grantham-based Gresley pacific No.4479 'Robert the Devil'.
