  1. Yes very sad. My dad worked there for forty seven years, that’s when you had a job for life. Fred Douglas if anyone knows him, he was the manager of the electric shop.

  2. I liked the blue sign that read Ten shilling reward for information that will lead to the conviction of anyone found breaking windows or trespassing on these works

  3. This is the “Globe Elevator Works”, originally belonging to Pickerings Ltd (Pickerings Lifts). Opposite the works were residential terraces, the road in front of the works was Beaumont Street, which along with Neasham Street and Croft Street were all demolished and the land incorporated into the works in the 50’s/60’s.
