Do you know Kincaid's workers?

GOUROCK reader Alex Nicolson is hoping someone knows the background to the accompanying photograph.
Alex believes it was taken in Kincaid's engine works in the mid-1970s.
Those shown included his late father, also Alex, who is second from the left in the middle row.
Alex senior was a driller in the fuel valve shop in East Hamilton Street. He worked for Kincaid's from the 1940s into the early 1960s. Alex then went to Joy Sullivan at Cappielow before returning to Kincaid's in the early 1970s.
His son said: "Those were the days when you could finish one job on the Friday, knock a door and start another job on the Monday." Alex senior retired in October 1981, but sadly died in March the following year.
He was born and brought up in Carwood Street in Greenock.
His own family lived in Brown Street from the early point of his employment before moving to Glamis Drive in Fancy Farm in 1962, where Alex remained until passing away.
His son Alex hopes the picture will bring back happy memories for readers who see a family member who may or may not still be with them.
Meanwhile, please drop me a note if you know what the occasion was or can put names to faces.
