Around 1960, as a somewhat timid and reluctant pupil (and fish out of water!) at Central Technical School, West Street, I remember walking, probably once a week, to tin-smithing classes at a workshop somewhere near to Davy's factory. It might well have felt as if I was serving a life sentence for something of which I was not guilty!  The futility and tediousness of it all was, however, often relieved by the appearance of a bag of broken sugar icing which was greedily consumed by all of us. By such acts of kindness is life remembered! Whoever you were, thank you!
