Brian Buss's father was the first caretaker at Dorking Halls: "I vividly remember coming to live at the Halls when only four and moved out after I married in 1949. This photo is of my father standing outside of the main entrance in the very early 1930s before a function. He is in his smart commissionaire’s uniform he was issued with along with his white gloves and his WW1 medals. As children we always knew of his approach by the noise they made hitting one another."
