Painter.

Another new employee perhaps or possibly a contractor.

He was born in 1867 in Dolgelly and first appears in FR records in 1880 as a cleaner. He progressed to being a painter about 1887 and continued to work for the FR until after 1924. However in 1911 he was living in Dolgelly and was a House Painter so he may well have left the company for a while.

Harry Griffiths is possibly the person in the photo known as Boyd26H. (click here to see) This photo is labelled "A Group taken in the Works Yard before the First War". It is believed to be around 1913. It is not all staff from the yard at that time. There was a list attached to the original which declares who the people are. This person is believed to be in the third row from the back and the tenth person from the left handside.
