  • It’s very difficult to pinpoint the location of the pictures, but the picture on the left I think shows overlock machinists in the production of knitwear. The interior of the room – especially the windows – resembles the former Foister Clay and Ward, later Meridian, factory on Belvedere Street, which also had a canteen. They produced knitwear after first under FCW producing fully fashioned stockings in the post war boom in stocking manufacture. They also had a factory off Newgate Lane.
    Maybe one of the ladies in the pictures might recognise themselves to pinpoint the pictures more accurately.
