Grantham water crane on platform 2 with loco dept. staff

This water crane was at the south end of platform 2. The man in the cap is Driver Tommy Staples. In front of him, lighting his pipe, is Sid Hart, a Clerk in the general office of the 'Loco' (motive power depot). On the right is Mr Tutty, Chief Clerk. This photograph was taken in July 1964, by which time the loco department was situated in the offices behind where the men are standing, the shed having closed in September 1963.
