Re: Today's Header
i have been through that entrance many times,my mother was a cleaner,she cleaned the office block,she would mop in the evening,then the next morning would polish brass work handrails etc some times I helped her before going to school. I served my time in PALMERS 1955-61 as it was,known then ,yes I remember those tiles,they were sombolic to how busy the river was in its hay day,when I go up hebburn to see my family,i make a point of touching those tiles,and reflect a little,daft you may think but TRUE ALLAN
ps I don't understand where the idea of being frowned on,my mother and other ladies who cleaned were hard working were glad of the pin money,they all had mouths to feed,i knew a lot of office staff went to school with some of them,just regular folk,some happen to wear a tie.I understand what your getting at Allan,may be one or two were in there minds a cut above the rest,what I do no the money was made on the shopfloor. cheers tb
