I worked for Findlater Mackie Todd (‘Findlater’s’) in the early 1970’s, as a lorry driver. The warehouse and offices above, were situated on an industrial estate between Morden and South Wimbledon, with a fleet of lorries distributing wine, alcohol – even spring water – to restaurants, businesses and executive dining rooms throughout London and the Home Counties. I even delivered a ‘mixed’ pallet to Newcastle!
Duties included regular collections from the many bonded warehouses along Tooley Street, adjacent to London Bridge and Findlater’s Corner.
In the latter part of the 20th century, those bonded warehouses were converted to apartments, now commanding £million prices.
Findlater’s familiar, green and gold livery (with the Queen’s Royal seal of approval) was eventually replaced, all transport refurbished in white, complete with the ‘Campari’ brand name.
