2nd from right Marjorie? Duckworth. Does anyone know the others?
The weavers each looked after 20 looms and,
they had a battery filler whose job it was to make sure none of the looms ran out of weft.
At age 15 I was my mother's battery filler - so definitely no slacking on the job.
I think the girl in the middle could be Brenda Bond, who was a pupil at Poolstock C. of E. school in the 1940's. I think she lived in the Walmer Street area of Poolstock.
The girl second from right is Barbara duckworth, we used to call her little Barbara,not seen her in years,must be 35 years now
