When having a bit of an office clear out, I came across a stash of old photos and negatives. This is not something you see all to often these days in the digital world we live in!

Most of these photos were of older installations from the 80’s and early 90’s Gardenia had undertaken. However some were of various Gardinia events and employees dating all the way back to the mid 80’s.

I’d previously shared an old company photo of everyone at Gardinia from October 1996 on our Facebook page, which was received well. So here are a few more photos from the archives, freshly scanned this morning.

It’s a testament to the company seeing a few familiar faces in these photos, who are still at Gardinia today.
