You are right his name was Arley now you mentioned it.As a matter of interest what year did he pass away.He must have been in his late 60,s or 70,s when i was working with him.
The only story i can vaguely remember him telling me is how him and his family ended up on the streets for a while All i know was that his family did go thru hard times during the depression..
I remember his two sons that worked with him . The one from his previous marriage look like a young Schultz from Hogans heroes and the other was slim blond and good looking. Talk about Chalk and Cheese.
What year did Stiles stationery disappear. I drove a courier van for them delivering stationery around Sydney Sorry i can not be of much help but it has been nearly 35 years since i worked for Stiles Stationery.
