It looks as if J.Black and myself are stuck with computers which are of little use to us.
Technology has overtaken us.
Is it bad luck to be named after a colour?
In answer to Alan and the Cabinet Works.
The Cabinet Works did start life half way along the block of factories between the Quilts and the Drugs.
I'm sure Norman has some photographs somewhere of tree trunks being unloaded from railway wagons onto the dockside opposite Pelaw railway station.
My father started work straight from school as an upholsterer in the old Cabinet Works before they built the new factory in Bill Quay.
He was there until it closed.
As an apprentice electrician for the CWS Engineers, I worked in all of the factories in Pelaw.
Pelaw Cabinet Works was an amazing place, tree trunks went in at one end and furniture came out the other end.
They even burned the sawdust, it was sucked up from around the machine heads and blown into the boilers.
It was collected in those cone shaped thing around the factory chimney.
I've been to the top of that chimney.
