Worked at Cartwrights in my school holidays 1960s canning antifreeze on a conveyor belt! It was hard physical work filling/capping and labelling large cans and very messy I was a permanent blue/green colour! Am sure Health and Safety would not allow these days! I remember we had the Time and Motion men clocking us and all the regular staff were not happy and told us to work slower! My Mum and my Dad worked at Storey Evans at different times. It was great around the factory buildings as they had ramps and perfect for roller skating and cycling I spent hours there tiddler fishing and skating at the dam. There would be masses of crates of bottles of various size and colour stacked between the sheds and the area had its own special aroma!
