These are of the card room arent they? Thats where Uncle frank(boss) and Uncle Arthur(despite what he used to tell people he was only an employee not the boss).
how did you get the pictures I have none of the interior, only exterior.Wish Id taken some when it closed.Did you work there or are they after it closed. just interested.I spent all my school and uni holidays working in dads part (Stanley),crimping cutting and packing. It was a standard pay + piece work. I worked out a way to pack very quickly and also crimp.
Dad couldnt understand how i could do so many. i could do half as many again as his best girl Ros. I remember he spent a whole day watching and checking i think he didnt trust me, but i devised a way of packing without openig the bags first.It was such a boring job i used to time myself how many i could do in a minute and try to beat myself.
Happy days,i used to love working with dad and we spent a lot of time together on the farm and with the horses and really missed him when he went to live in Wales.Somehow it eased it though when he died in March as i had got used to not seeing him very often. Suppose this is what is making me nostalgic and think about the past. thanks for photos.
