Thanks to Colin McFadyen for allowing me to borrow and scan an 80 yr old Album of photos taken in the 'Bomb Factory' where local people produced the bombs for our RAF. The factory later became 'Baker Perkins'.
Here are some samples that I cropped to get closer views of the workers. Hopefully someone will recognise a face or two. Watch out for more faces later.
