The Pelaw Co-op header

Here is the Pelaw Co-op complex in 1948 with my explanation of when the Co-op arrived, bringing employment for the area. My late sister Marian got her first job there as a Comptometer Operator in the wages department. I used to go up and give her a lift home at finishing time on the back of my Norton. Happy days.
No massive Government grants were given to new employers like them in those days.
