Re: Another aerial view of Leslies
Fantastic photo. My Grandad, John William Newman, worked at Hawthorn Leslies for most, if not all, of his shipyard career as a labourer and rivetter before he moved the family to Watford in the mid-1930s. He was recalled during WW2 and worked there again. His second son, Tommy, who had also been a rivetter before the family moved, was also recalled and worked at Swan Hunter on the other side of the river. I wonder if they stayed with family while they were there.
