    Taylor Eye Witness - old photos

    Hi Nellsie My mum worked at Taylor’s Eye Witness for years, so did my aunt and sister. She passed away last month and I have some photos somewhere. I’ll find them out.

    Help dog in season

    I have never had an unspayed bitch before so I’m unsure what is natural.Do they resume spotting after apparently having stopped? She’s 10 months and it’s her first season.

    Does anyone know the procedure to sign on and how long it takes before it's sorted? Thanks
  7. I had family members who worked there when it was at Milton Street. When I was about 13 I would visit and remembered it was like something out of a Dickens novel.

    You could either do a course full time (5 days a week) paid for by the students or their parents or an employer would pay your fees and you would do day release at college.So you would work until about 1pm then to college until about 8pm. Btw knives, overalls and books were an expensive outlay. Yes Hallam is the old Poly.If I remember rightly the catering department was on the 11th and 12th floors.

    He would have gone to Granville College which had a great catering course and done his City and Guilds . If he was a bit cleverer he would have done a Higher National Diploma at Sheffield Polytechnic.
