My first job was at Rabones in Whitmore Street Hockley, left school end of term July, 1941 on Friday I think it was and by Monday, still Thirteen and still in short trousers, my job, standing on a soapbox cause I was too short to reach the Vyse,was to file the brass ends of the wooden rulers and also the folding part of the inside.
Is that great long factory still there, stretching from Ford Street around into Whitmore Street? I know that Rabones (Chesterton)are now on Spring Hill where the Old Cinema called the Palace theatre once stood

Brookie I wouldn't be surprised if Phil has a picture of your old Rabone factory. SB


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.
