Wednesday header in the White Lead
Posted by Norman Dunn on March 24, 2021, 8:50:55
Todays header was taken 101 years ago in the Pub that eventually became Dougies Tavern and is still standing today as the 'White Lead' but closed due to the pandemic.It got the nick name White Lead because of the whiteish coloured dust that landed on it from the Lead Works across the road.No health & safety in those days. How many of our relatives died young because of lung diseases from the Industry in our Towns churning out smoke & dust?
