Her mum, then Joan Poole, is pictured second left.

Levertons was a fixture in Spalding for many decades.

The business started as a car dealership in 1904and began repairing Caterpillar machineryin the late 1920s, becoming an authorised Caterpillar dealer in 1935.

It stopped selling carsafter being bought by Unilever around 1970.

In its heyday the company employed around 200 workers.
