Don’t sit down – no long or in-depth story this time. Just a gentle reminder of the sort of shape a past life can sometimes take.

My father worked for Timbrols/Union Carbide from 1942 until he retired I was very small But I remember his smelly overalls until they provided them. I believe they made agent orange later. I often wonder why he did not go to WW2 all that was said that he had a “no 1 priority job” eg making bombs. “Dioxin”
Pretty sure this dentist office was the old CES building
I too remember this as the CES office as far back as 1981 when I was able to walk in and get a Uni summer job unloading meat trucks at Presto in Greenacre – no interview and all you could eat process meat sandwiches at work.
Was this building around in 1950’S ?
