1940s cartoon portrait of Fred Jones bar manager & Salford Councillor

This charming cartoon portrait oozes the nostalgic humour of the 30s and 40s. The picture was sent by Fred's grandson Steve Jones who has biographical details about Fred Jones, but would be interested in hearing from anyone who knew him or can provide further information.
