  1. Thanks very much for your replies, I'll get back to you all via PM's
  2. I was told a story once about the reintroduction of Green Shield Stamps - prob in the 80's. A man who had a huge lorry load of them never made his delivery on the grand reintroduction day, as he'd got too drunk the night before and couldn't drive. Needless to say he was sacked.
  3. Your memories WANTED for a new book. Did you work in or around Sheffield in the 1950’s or 60’s? Perhaps you worked in the cities famous steel industry or within one of the many engineering or manufacturing works? If so we’d love to hear your stories and memories from that time. Shop floor up to management, we’re interested in all your industrial tales. David Hall, (producer, director and author responsible for the popular Fred Dibnah programmes on BBC2) is currently writing a new book. ‘Working Lives’ will tell the stories of some of the people that worked in Britain’s major industrial industries in the 1950’s & 60’s, when this Country was still considered the workshop of the world. It’s the stories of your work, life and times that we want to hear and feel should be preserved. We’re looking for people who’d be happy to spare an hour to talk about memories from their earlier lives and about the communities they were part of. The jobs you had and what they entailed; social and family life, local traditions, courting rituals, the hardships and the pleasures in life, works outings, the decline of industry and the affect it had upon your community…. your memories of Britain in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. If you think that you, or someone you know would like to contribute to the book please do not hesitate to contact Kathryn on: 0113 249 3001 or industrialmemories@yahoo.co.uk
