Advertiser reader Mrs P. Bailey has sent us four photographs from the the former Wolsey Mills in Kimberley.

In this one workers can be seen posing for the picture with who could be a factory manager on the right.

Mrs Bailey, of Nottingham Road in Kimberley, said that the photographs, including this one, were all taken at some point between 1946 and the early 1950s.

She said: “I hope they may be of interest to your readers.”

The lace factory – known as Wolsey’s –employed generations of Kimberley folk from its opening in the 19th century.
