Would have been her maiden name Elsie Duckworth in this photo married in 1947.

Lovely photo - the camaraderie shines through. It wasn't just working life - it was the social aspect as well. It must have been a clean job - they all look so neat and tidy. A great set of photos showing how life was at the time.

I think one of my Auntie's worked here for a while. Was the factory off Chapel Lane?

In the 1970's I had the pleasure of working with two ladies who worked at B&H clothing; who worked there during the W.W.2, they told me they made uniforms for the armed forces and they put letters in the pockets for a soldier to find.
