Memories from the paintresses department

Excerpts from one of ‘The Workers’ Story’ oral history recordings, which includes: Maureen Smallman, Lorraine Smith, Joyce Lawrence, Fay Stephens, Marion Chalcroft, Cynthia Smith and Freda Griffiths.

The ladies talk about when Freda Doughty brought a box of kittens in for them to work from, how Daisy Rae used to spit into the paint mixture instead of using glycerine (which was used if the paint mixture was too thin), how the smell of aniseed clung to their clothes and how Pat Rigby once brought her sick pet rabbit into the paintresses department.
