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!
