The photograph above could easily feature in the Marks and Spencer summer adverts with the Allen Toussaint song ‘Here Come the Girls’ playing through it.

The picture shows female staff from the Falkirk Marks and Spencer store sunbathing on the shop’s roof in their bathing suits in the summer of 1961 or 9162.

It was sent in by Joyce Laing who is pictured on the left of the photo.

The other bathing beauties were Ellen McAlpine, Margaret Easton, Annette Marshall and a colleague named Moira.

We wonder if staff could get away with a spot of sunbathing at work in this day and age.

Former employee Ena McLaughlan also said her time there was great. If you know who Moira is then please get in touch to let us know on (01324) 690249.
