I sent one of my Our families at work in the 1900s books to a Jarrow expat lady. I wont say her name incase she doesnt want me to post her reply. |
Ive told her if she comes onto this board, she might meet up with old friends. Here is what she said about working in Reyrolles offices.
Hello again, Norman, I loved the book, thank you. I recognised a couple faces from the sixties in Reyrolles, where I worked from 1965 to 1970/1. The photo that means the most and brought back loads of memories, is the one of Stella Fordís presentation, when she emigrated. Mary Kelly was her supervisor (at the time) and Elizabeth (Betty) Grieves was second in charge, Ann McMurray had polio as a child and walked with a limp, all really nice ladies. I think they all worked in the Works Office, as did I, at the time. I started as a messenger/filing clerk and eventually, I was Mr. Bernard T. Waiteís secretary. I was made Reyrolles girl of the year, in, (I think) 1969.
Iím sure in the depths of our garage (itís a big garage, lol) in a memory box I have some Reyrolles Circuit magazines, which I will hunt out, to see if theyíre any use to you!
