The photos on this weeks memory lane were taken at Kimberley’s Wolsey factory, and were posted to us by Pat Eley, who lives in Tenerife.

Among others in the photo are Winnie Reves, Pam Birch, Betty Brown, Doreen Hanson, Jean Burnham and Pat Eley herself.

The pictures were taken in the 1950s.

Pat worked in the room for Nylon Seamers and examiners.

She said her boss was Jack Hartshorne and his assisstant was Winnie Naylor.

Pat was chosen to travel all over the country with her American machine to demonstrate and promote Wolsey Nylons.
